Has anyone ever been searching for the Deadman's cave near Crestone, Colorado? I wanted to chat with other treasure hunters who have been down into Deadman's creek area. I have been searching in that area for 3 years and found all sorts of mines, prospect tunnels, and Spanish markers.
Haven’t made it down yet but I’ve read about it, ever make it down there?

I'm thinking years past, at least 1 or 2 TN members were there.

Was another member writing a book, covered Colorado treasure legends. Don't know if he ever finished the book, has been a couple years since then.

I go down to SLV a lot but haven't been around Crestone that much. I mainly spend time on the west side these days. There's some peculiar things there, I don't know if they're spanish related, but I'm mostly looking for NDN pictographs.
