Did a gold panning tour at 9 am where we drove out and visited the fields, panned for gold, and learned a whole bunch about the local gold mining/panning conditions. I found a speck of gold dust that was put in a vial for me! Made it back past noon for lunch at Sourdough Joes, a local fave. Over at the cultural center they had a great local music band and I enjoyed my first dose of first nations music. I also did a tour of the commissioner’s residence and walked along the main street with shops. One of the coffee shops served French fries with poutine - a bit of an acquired taste, I’d say. Last on the agenda for the day was the Klondike Spirit dinner cruise at 6.30 pm - the upper deck for perfect for viewing the beauty on both sides of the rive. Great views of Moosehide village. Got back to land and checked out some more performances at DCMF before calling it a day.
