Hundreds of people from all over the country are flocking to the shores of Nome, Alaska with the hope of finding gold, locals say.
The region is expected to experience a second gold rush. Since the beginning of the recession in 2008 the city has been preparing for the "influx of out-of-towners".
"I´m up here to have some fun, and If I find some gold, that will make it more pleasurable," Ken Scott from Thibodaux, La. said. The Nome Gold Rush brought prospectors to the region starting in the 1890s.
