    I didn't know this thread got resurrected a few months ago.

    TreasureHunter2004, where did you find the six caves? In which canyon? I've uploaded a map with some notations on it. Did you find them in one of the canyons circled in red and numbered?

    The solid black line is the path I hiked up Deadman's Creek last fall. The black circle is where there are about six dilapidated log cabins, which is a good landmark for anybody hiking this path. I couldn't tell where the main creek splits off, so I accidentally missed the turn and kept heading up the draw, which is where the black line ends. I didn't see a single cave anywhere.

    The red circles are where I expect this cave of lore to possibly be. The story says that they hunkered down in a canyon when a storm blew in and this is where they saw the cave. I suspect one of those little draws I circled would be a good place to get out of the wind but still have enough visibility to see a small opening in the rocks.

    Nothing was mentioned about Deadman's Lakes, so perhaps the draw where they are could be eliminated. Who knows for sure, though.

    as a matter of fact we did indeed hike up deadmans creek. when we went there was still snow on the ground in march, and while hiking this canyon most of the caves we came across were on the right side of the canyon and one must climb somewhat to see them as you wont if standing in the bottom of the canyon. The 3 caves on the right side had numbers on them which look spray painted, I have pics somewhere on my phone that I can share if you would like to see. I believe if my memory is correct we found 3 caves on the right side and 3 on the left side further down the canyon. We did not hike as far as to see any of the log cabins, but If asking my opinion I would not base fact on this cave being in that area. I plan on going back in early August by myself to search a different area. Do you live in the area Elliot? if you do message me and I will share some info with you.

    Happy hunting and stay safe everyone

    @treasure_hunter_2004: A friend and I were talking about heading up to this area at the end of the summer. Did you have any further luck on your quest?
