Picture of prospectors leaving for the gold camps. A prospector couldn't go over the pass unless he or she had $600 worth of supplies. Unfortunately by the time most of these people got to the gold camp, most of the good claims had already been taken.
Picture of those credited with the discovery of gold in Dawson City. It was the wife (pictured in the center) who actually made the discovery while washing clothes in a nearby stream.

"When I first met you, you told me I could use the profits I would make in the mining stocks to pay off my house. I didn’t really believe you. Two and half years later I wrote a check to do just that. I never thought this would be possible. Thank you so much for your wise guidance."
