Colorado Lead Help
We're headed to Pagosa Springs the 1st of the month for two weeks vacation. We're planning on moving there in August. I've had trouble finding a good cache lead for this area, other that what's in books, and was wandering if someone here might have a credible lead they'd be willing to share.

Heard a lot about Treasure Mountain, but not real familiar with that part of the state. Check out the Colorado forum here and maybe those rascals will wake up. I wanted to welcome y'all to Colorado. Get the chance, flatlanders, come see us up here in Summit County.

Will do, I've been reading about treasure falls. We've been going to pagosa for 11 years and have hiked up to the falls. It's beautiful!! Will check in on the Colorado group. Actually I prefer to search for coins rather than ore or gold dust. Easier to dispose of.

Well, one more quick thing. Not in your area, but get the chance give Round Hill south of Poncha Pass a look. Just a great place in the history of Colorado treasure tales. I agree with you on that coins versus ore or dust. I can't count the times I've gone to the local convenience store with gold dust and had to wait forever for it to be weighed, when with a coin I could have been in and out. Hahaha! Jokin about that part.

I will look into it. Also just FYI.......I have several books on burried treasure in Colorado but the best book I have for studying is a Historical Atlas of Colorado. You ought to get one. It's a wealth of info going back into the 1500's and has many maps including old trails, forts, towns long gone, fur trader routes, spanish and french explorations, etc.
