Reed Gold Mine

The boys and I took a trip to Reed's Gold Mine on Saturday on our way to Poppop's house. It's kindof on the way to his house. We took Hwy. 64 to Hwy. 49, went through Mt. Pleasant, and got on NC 200. We had a good time walking in an actual mine tunnel, touring the museum, strolling the property, and panning for gold. I did find a speck of gold in my pan, and they put it in a plastic vial filled with water. You can almost see it if you look hard enough;-) Joey was fascinated with the ore cars (think Thomas mine tunnel) and even asked the tour guide a question. Johnny loved panning, um playing in water.
The rest of the pics are here.
