    About 250 miles north of Santa Fe.

    The following is from the book, The Beale Treasure, a History of a mystery, by Peter Viemeister.

    "It wasn't until 1858 that word spread that gold had been found in Colorado, north of Santa Fe. To get to that gold ore area from Santa Fe, prospectors travelled on the west side of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, north to Taos. They rode northward and then headed northeast, through the Sangree de Cristo Pass and on towards Pueblo, Colorado. Fountain Creek then leads northward to the eastern slope of pike's Peak. Twenty miles further northwest is a town now known as Fairplay. Overall, by land, the route is a bit more than 250 miles. That's just about the distance that Beale's letter talks about. It is a slow, tough trek in winter snow."
