Devil's Canyon

A new series began on Discovery Channel tonight called Devil’s Canyon. It airs at 10 pm ET on Tuesday’s.

The new series so far follows three men each searching for gold for different reasons and all are from different professions.

One guy is a hospital security guard, the other is solely a gold miner,t he other is a former Marine. I was disappointed they didn’t give the names of the men. For whatever reason not sure why.

Two of the men are doing this for their families and the other one for his girl. All three men have decided to develop different strategies for packing for their six-week journey in Devil’s Canyon.

Some are packing heavily on equipment, others food. One is planning on hunting his food. Their backpacks weigh 130lbs alone. They will be carrying them mostly on their backs, not having any additional help.

The men’s first order of business is setting up shelter and a base camp. Their main worries are wild animals like black and grizzly bears. They are trying to find warm dry shelter in a place they think animals won’t be near.

Two build their shelter, one sets up a tent. All three men are worried about winter and flash floods as well as clean water for drinking. One even builds a water filtration system.

All three search potential mining sites. Two find trace amounts one does not. Each have their own methods and theories for finding gold. If correct a years worth of wages can be had in a few short months.

At only one time of year can gold be found when the river is low. A storm hits. They take shelter all trying to start fires. Two succeed one fails. Apparently birch bark is the best for fire starting. Trees start crashing down.

With that this weeks episode ends. Although the storyline is interesting I really feel like the series is a bust. It’s slightly boring, its impersonal. The commercial pulls you in, but the first episode wasn’t very good. Nonetheless I will continue writing about the show until its finale. I hope this show gets better overall. See you next week.
