Lost Dutchman mine!

The Superstition Mountains!  Lost Dutchman mine!  Gold! Exciting stuff!  These are all the things I think about while I am supposed to be sleeping!

Kathy and I decided to go on a horse trek in the Superstition Mountains!  I asked my witcher to tell me where the Lost Dutchman’s mine is so we could find it.  After he finished a long rant about how it was not safe and he wasn’t going out there, we scaled back the plan.

We went for a 2 hour horseback ride.  After not riding for 30 years we felt in most of the remaining fibers of our bodies that 2 hours was more than enough at one time!  The treasure will need to remain hidden!

We were able to meet the owner of the outfitting company.  It turns out that he is probably the foremost authority on the Superstition Mountains and the Lost Dutchman mine.  His name is Ron Feldman.  He has written three books on his adventures and they are quite a good read (I am about half way through “Deep Fault”).  He told me they are historic novels. It makes it good fun to figure out what came just out of his imagination.

He showed us his mine as well, a great guy and a good story teller!

If you have more stamina on a horse than we do he will guide you into the Superstition Mountains so maybe you can find the Lost Dutchman Mine!P1030578

About moregold1

I have been involved with mining and related industries, since about 1982. My father liked prospecting, so my brothers and I went on a number of prospecting adventures, when we were young. I first visited Alaska in 1982, then mined there in 1983. I have been involved in different ways with mining in Oregon, California, Nevada, Guyana South America, and of course The Yukon Territory.
