    Another Book on The Lost Adams Diggings

    Here is another book that came out not too long ago about The Lost Adams Diggings.
    I have not read it. Might be worth checking out. Here is the website address. I went ahead and ordered a copy thru Amazon.

    Our library doesn't have it yet. The area is above Silver City in the Gila National Fprest, is rough, but not bad when you're young, never saw a snake, or found any gold, but wasn't looking for it. Just hiking in my hippy days. Never was a legend chaser. The country up there is beautiful and you should check it out if you're still fit. "No Country For Old Men"
    Also, check it out on Google Earth. There is a Z(squashed) shaped canyon that is supposed to be the entrance to the Adams Diggings. Friend emailed me the coorinates a few years ago. Canyon is there, wasn't interested and deleted said coordinates...

    Austin, you sure are right. That country is rough, unforgiving and very beautiful. My father lived in Mimbres, NM. I spent quite a bit of time up there with him. After he passed in 2011, I put it on the market and periodically travelled back and forth from San Antonio. Finally sold it in 2014. In hindsight I kind of wished I kept it.

    I came here in my hippy days too and I'm still here. Even after more than 40 years of exploring it, and finding thousands of amazing locations, I feel like I've only scratched the surface. As you say, a fine choice for a person with young legs and a wandering spirit.

    After many years of thought, I suspect that the Adams party worked the Bear Creek placers a few miles below Pinos Altos, during the period when the village was abandoned due to Apache trouble, and shortly after the murder of Mangas Coloradas. It's also my current opinion that Jacob Snively, who discovered the placers a couple years earlier, was the Dutchman in the group.

    Wish I'd kept the coordinates for you guys, but I figured I'd never need them. This was nack in about 2008 or so. I easily found the canyon sort of N of Silver City. Hard to see if you look for a Z, but look for a squashed down Z on it's side and that's it. Never went back because I am way older, way weaker and way smarter. And I don't think my old buddy found anything.
