The Faces of Boulder team went down to the Boulder Creek this weekend searching for a unique Face of Boulder and came back with some photos to share. Joseph Wirth and I happened to run into two very recognizable faces, Trapper and the High Plains Roller. These two men were panning for gold which is one of the simplest ways to obtain this precious metal. Although it is easy to pan for the gold it yields a very small amount making it a very time consuming way to make money.
