    Treasure in Grand Junction?

    Hi all,
    Recently moved to Grand Junction, CO. Any suggestions for a good hunt? Particularly wondering if the Spanish ever made it this way and may have left any caches or vaults behind.

    Cheers

    Go down to the Museum of Western Colorado on 462 Ute Ave and take a look at what the WIT team has found around the mountains of Grand Junction.
    The mountains have rules.They are harsh rules,but they are there,and if you keep to them you are safe.A mountain is not like men. A mountain is sincere. The weapons to conquer it exists inside you,inside your soul.

    I've been to that museum and enjoyed their displays, definitely worth visiting for any history buffs who go to Grand Junction.

    Rattlesnake Gulch near Delta is a pretty place and would be fun to explore.
    Not far from GJ.

    The Spanish did indeed go through that area. When I visited a couple years ago, we hiked part of the old Spanish trail. Lots of cool history there. Enjoy!

    There are stories of a lost Spanish gold mine 2 hours to the south west of Grand Junction over in the Henry mountains near Hanksville, Utah and you'll find stories of it online. Also they were and maybe still are wanting to develop a gold and silver mine in the Henry's called Bromide mining. I was going over there when they were developing the underground work, but they gave up on that and now the plan is to develop an open pit mine. I had a friend who is now passed, that showed me a rock he said his grandmother found a river wash quartz rock about the size of an egg in Escalante canyon not far from Grand Junction and it had a very detailed mans face carved in it and I thought the image of the face was a person with Spanish features. I wish I took a picture of it.

    In this video all the artifacts shown are fake a man in the 50's went around the Grand Junction area and down into utah hiding this stuff.No one knows why he did this but it is all fake people to this day still find this crap he hid especially in Dominguez canyon and the cactus Park area.I am not saying this is what your friend had Tamrock but this man did throw a lot of this stuff out there.
