Default Yakima

Eh Brad - any gold over there near Yakima? I live in Kenmore - about 2 hours away. I have ordered a MineLab X-Terra 70 and it should be here in about a week.

I'm trying to find some of the quasi ghost towns in WA. to get started.

Default American river ridge ski bowl

I've been detecting the yakima valley for years. A fun and sometimes lucrative location is the American ridge ski bowl. Built in the 30's, closed in the 50's I've found some great stuff there. People ski with the dumbest stuff in there pockets.

Are you still trying to start a detecting group? I've been detecting the Yakima area for 8 years and would like to do it with someone. Hard to get motivated when your by your self.
