    Easter Oregon wild west treasure

    I am on the hunt for lost treasure in Eastern Oregon. I live in Umatilla county and i am surrounded with tales of lost gold mines, indian caches, and buried bandit loot. I have heard a story since I was younger about a bandit cache located in Stage Gulch. Stage Gulch is a shallow narrow valley between Pendleton and Standfield Oregon. This was the only route connecting the gold mines in the northeastern Blue Mtns. to the Columbia landing at Umatilla. I will post some updates as this excursion developes and I am open to creating partnerships with intrested individuals in the area. I am thinking about using a page on my website to document my endeavors.

    I tried to concentrate on geological features that would have withstood the test of time. They were few and far between. My next step is to get a list of all the landowners in the Gulch.

    Good luck on this quest! I have done well on landowners using the county GIS online to identify who I need to contact for permission.

    Watch out for snakes!!

    Hope you meant to say Stanfield Oregon, not Standfield Oregon. I know where one of these is located in Oregon, but have not heard of the latter.
