Backpack Gold Dredge
- A gold dredge is a placer mining machine that extracts gold from sand, gravel and dirt using water and mechanical methods.
- A backpack (also called rucksack, knapsack, packsack, pack, or Bergen) is, in its simplest form, a cloth sack carried on one’s back and secured with two straps that go over the shoulders, but there can be exceptions. Light weight types of backpacks are sometimes worn on only one shoulder strap.
- Travel or hike carrying one’s belongings in a backpack
- hike with a backpack; “Every summer they are backpacking in the Rockies”
- a bag carried by a strap on your back or shoulder

Moose Creek "future camp"
After my wife and I had camped at Fraser Idaho the night before, we made a figure 8 back road trip, on roads never before traveled by us and through some outstanding Idaho back country.
We followed FR250 along French and Orogrande Creek to the North Fork of the Clearwater. We then headed upriver on FR250 to Kelly Creek.
At Kelly Creek we made the small loop trip up Kelly Creek on FR255 then Moose Creek, almost to Hoodoo Pass, then back down the Black Canyon where we followed the course of the upper North Fork of the Clearwater River.
Once back at Kelly Creek , we retraced our route along the North Fork of the Clearwater to Orgrande Creek. From here we made the wide loop down the North Fork of the Clearwater and up Beaver Creek on FR247. Lots of sights and beautiful country, all along the way. Good country to drive with the windows down, when the short duration rain storms weren’t hitting us
For those of you who like detail and the "story" with your photo viewing, as is my habit, I have written up a "trip report".
The trip narrative can be viewed by opening the photo set and reading it there (NF Clearwater River July 2009),
Sumpter Valley Gold Dredge
Steam-powered gold dredging… yet another page in man’s long history of raping the Earth for greed. So here sits this behemoth, amidst a seeming endless swath of ruined landscape, churned up and spit out by these machines. As you drive along the Powder River, you go past miles and miles of ravaged devastation. This land, once beautiful, is now good for nothing. Weeds don’t even seem to grow well. Beyond sad.
This machine was built in 1935, and ran until 1954.
From an old slide. About ten years ago.
