I saw this Gold Prospector Statue in Sumas, Washington, out the car window on our road trip from Seattle to Hyder, Alaska. We didn’t have time to stop, so I could only get a couple of quick snaps in before we drove off.

At the time (2009) it sat next to Lo’s Garden Chinese and American Food, a restaurant that is now Pho & Teriyaki Asian Cuisine.

I haven’t been able to find much out about this Washington roadside attraction that lives just south of US-Canadian border. The statue depicts a bearded man wearing a red shirt and floppy hat, crouching down with a sifting pan. Presumably the statue honors the town’s history as a location on the Gold Mine Trail.
