After spending much time in the San Luis Valley, Pagosa Springs, and South Fork areas, we concluded that the Spanish had to have known French soldiers and miners were in the area from roughly 1748-1756. Also, again 1799-1802. This is because of the relationships that both Spanish and the French had with the local Indians. Furthermore, it would have been impossible to have groups ranging from 200 - 350 men that would have not been discovered. We have read your posts in this forum. You clearly have done much research.

    The article you eluded too about the pistol is no surprise. It is a smoking gun. Our research so far places Spanish Conquistadors in the San Luis Valley as early as 1519. Oddly enough, we also had a gentlemen show us a book that possibly puts Montezuma himself in the San Luis Valley as far north as Antonito! How awesome would it be if it some day could be proven!

    I think, in the Citadel, Maynard explains the need for the French to leave the Summitville area in the winter. Treasure Mountain is next to Wolf Creek and Summitville is within a day or less hike. There is no way the French would have endured 450" averages of snow at those altitudes. I have hiked TM several times, and know the Wolf Creek Pass area very well. It gets a lot of snow. Taos and Sante Fe would have been the winter destinations of these men. Look forward to your response.
    Do you have any more info to share that you might have discovered.

    Here is a blaze I found where I think the treasure is cached. Itís a trail mark that predates 1878, and was commonly used by Europeans and migrated to America. Whatís interesting about it is that I found it at the top of a ridge I had to cross to get into a valley where I believe the treasure is.

    Welcome to Tnet from the Western Slope I see this is your first post you will find lots of good info on this website. Nice tree blaze but be careful Joshua9900 I have been fooled many a time by the blaze. You need to be looking for carvings in stone that is the true indicator of the trail and the site.Here are a couple of blazes that are true to the time period to, these two trees are over 6 feet around good luck in your endeavors.Click image for larger version.

ID:	1743048I have circled some thing in red to the left of the tree in the back ground you will have to magnify it but this is what to look for to, and I am saying it could be nothing to but research everything.Boots on the ground is the only way this will be found one of these days some one will stumble across it.

    Did you date the blaze using a dendrochronologist?

    Sometimes natural blemishes on trees end up looking man made. If you want to be sure, you have to investigate underneath the edges of the blaze to see if there are blade marks on the wood underneath. And if you want to date a blaze, you have to use tree rings to do so.
