In the 1970's gold prices soared and interestly enough, for the very similar reasons the increase in gold today is breaking the $1,000 level. The increase in gold gave my father the idea that we could go and dredge for gold along the riches gold lined rivers in California. The Yuba, American, and Cosumnes Rivers. My father would take us for summers at a time.
This particular summer was in the late 70's, and we were camped along the Cosumnes River.
Well, here is what I saw, then I will tell you what my father saw.
That is the last we spoke of it. I don't recall anything else that evening.
