    Got to get to bed and get up for that pesky Job thing, but without reading your link yet, I'll go from memory here and throw out something presumably not too hard to find that may or may not go slightly farther back than this: Its something like "Geology of the Organ Mountains". May be by...

    Really, MY only claim (not those authored by the esteemed Steve-o himself) is that no-one here knows everything. Not too extraordinary. Or is it? WOW. And, for those who don't think that anyone here has "Solved the Universe", then they might want to consider some counter-points to the...

    Bud, you are really seeming a bit angry and personal here. It saddens me, as I respect your research skills and the knowledge you DO seem to have. Of course, there is knowledge and experience you DO NOT have. Unless your present slippery slope leads you to refute even this? Please don't use...

    I think I know the video you are talking about. May have been on one of Terry's websites and not YouTube. Does not sound at all like the Tres Hermanas per the Fowler version or anything near Palomas. The hill from the video could be anywhere, but sounds most like Lordsburg area. In fact that...

    Any details you can share? The story from Fowler was all about Silver, not Gold. Mountains, plains, river area, etc.?

    Lots of certainty in the last few posts. Here's some things the unresolved may consider: Padre LaRue does have a historical trail. That trail includes a very plausible reason for him to be shipped far, far away. There's plenty of metal in the Caballos and Hillsboro etc etc. Not everything...

    Hmmm, memory is fuzzy. Thought there was a similar one with detached legs some say memorializes one of the many gruesome details of the Victorio massacre of the Mexicans and Lone Texan by Massacre Peak. This one looks more like a Trickster! Watched some Netflix thing about a cave in France...

    Back up in the Caballos, possible true source of the gold in Victorio Peak or secondary recovery spot, or source of material used to promote the Hembrillo location, we have this little cave. What's kind of fun about this one is that it sort of has a pair of eyes. Ojos. Get it? Anyways, it's...

    Little pointer OK, so this is from down in the Organs. I posted it in some other thread, too. It's not too far from one of them big boulders people have dug under. I like it more as a miner's marker, given the little wishful pile of "highgrade" at the bottom of the picture. They probably...

    Well, north of there anyways? Thanks for sharing it. If it's where I remember, there is a nice bow and arrow there, as well as a squiggly square lined thing that some people have referred to as a ship, but I think that they are confused and remembering canyon del barco or the dynamited Rincon...

    There are definitely some themes that repeat like that. The cougar sign is one of them. So are the bears feet. And the square-eyed Tlalocs. It's the ones that don't fit that are the most interesting.

    Man, that's tough, remote country. Wish I were tougher. I was given some little wire silver poof balls that supposedly came out of a pocket in a now covered mine near Chloride Flats. Definitely, mines in the Burros were worked back in Colonial times or earlier. A friend of mine passed this...

    How could I forget that map? It's very intriguing. I need to see if I can get permission to publish it in an upcoming little thingie.

    Friend in Cruces came up with this, but he only found issues straddling the date you requested. New Mexico Digital Newspapers I thought Cooney was quite a bit farther than that, up by Willow Creek and Mogollon, but I'm going off of memory...

    I wish this little birdie from the Caballos would tell me where the goodies are... There are a number of obviously non-Native petro's in this cluster, including an additional birdie with a heart, but that one is scratched in. The main ones are nicely chiseled.
