As the seasons change here in Arizona, the temps have finally come down enough to get out and find some gold.  I met up with a good friend this morning and we drove out to a place called "Owl Wash".  Although I forgot to mention it at the time, I did see the owl today. 

After a couple hours and a half a dozen trashy targets, I moved my coil up the side of the gully and got a distinct signal.  After scraping away all the loose material, I started to see darker clay and the bedrock.  I slowed down and worked to pinpoint the target so I could hopefully 'see it' without disturbing it.  I blew the dust away and gold was showing.  :yesss:   So I figured it would be a good time for some pictures, and I went back to where I left my backpack.  Once I returned with my phone to take the picture, I discovered that it had died trying to get a signal.  Oh well, no insitsu pics today.  :idunno:  But I am otherwise quite pleased with this 2.3g nugget.  :D

Yup...it was a great day just to get out and forget about everything!.......I got a couple of dinks out of the gut of that area in the past...but did not hit the sides, so you win! :) Hard to hit a lot of ground with the little monster though. Must have walked past that nug 10 times in the past. But, hey! the area

above it (backwards wash) was kind to me :) 

Good time out...will hit it again!

P.S. that second photo looks like a gold monster hanging on to the quartz .Head to the left, arms in the middle and legs to the right. I may need to put the whiskey away for tonight :ROFL:

Nice score!! 

I'm with You and TomH. . .  I too had to get out and away from the election coverage going on.  I scored  a total of 5 for 2.2dwt. Twas a beautiful day to get out.

That looks like a fine day!  Or even five days.  Congratulations.  I'd be stoked too.  :yesss:

Any gold found with a metal detector is good gold.

I was just messing with you.  I've been known to give gold miners from Nevada a hard time.

Thanks for posting a pic.  :)
