I'm Holly Jo, I was the "Gold Girl" tour guide the last 3 years at Porcupine Creek in Haines, AK. Two years at John & Parker Schnabel's Big Nugget Gold Mine and one year at Dakota Fred's Porcupine Creek Gold Mine. Not sure what I will be doing this year as the Gold tours at Porcupine Creek are not offered any more...and I kinda got fired.

2012 Season is coming soon

We are starting to talk about summer of 2012.  It sounds like the Gold Tours to Big Nugget Mine on Porcupine Creek are a go.  I can't wait to see how much gold the Schnabel Family find this coming season.  It has been fun watching last season on the Discovery Channel.
In real time Parker is playing basketball for our High School Glacier Bears.  They are playing in the Region V Southeast Tournament down in Ketchikan this week.  Many locals have followed them down to support our athletes.  I heard they have been winning! Go Glacier Bears!
If you get to come to Haines Alaska this summer remember to come visit Big Nugget Mine.  The tours will not be sold on the Cruise Ships.  Go to Tourhaines.com and book a tour with Rainbow Glacier Adventures if you are porting in Skagway or Haines....or if your driving through.
Summer will be here before we know it.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
