Alright, Lost, here comes a "hoot out of hell." I'll explain it to you again. Now pay attention this time, ok?
The Garcia Waybill says: (From page 81 of "Of Men and Gold")
1- "The mine can be found, west 12 leguas (leagues) of the river Timpanogas headland..."
A league is about 2 1/2 miles, so 12 leagues is 30 miles.
The Timpanogas River is now called the Provo River (See the 1851-53 Reinaldo map.) The headlands of the Provo River is just below Bald Mountain Pass, OK? Well, guess what? That area, as I measured it, is 29 miles to Hoyt Peak if you follow along the Mirror Lake Highway (the most easy, logical route) down to Slate Creek, then follow Slate Creek north (again the most logical, direct route) up and then west to Hoyt Peak. Isn't 29 miles pretty close to 12 leagues? (and I just roughly measured it, not considering all the bends and turns) Or is this just BS, as you would say?
So, this is the "first" of the descriptions (a general description) of the location of the Mine of the Yutahs or the Josephine.
2- "...and 2 leagues from the "entrance" of the river Santa Ana to the southeast..."
Two leagues is about 5 miles. The "entrance" of the Santa Ana (Weber) River is where the Weber River first "enters" into Kamas Valley, northeast of Oakley. If you measure from where the river first enters the valley it is about 4 1/2 miles "southeast" to Hoyt Peak. But if you follow an existing (and possibly old) trail southeast up the mountain, the distance increases to about 5 miles to Hoyt Peak. Coincidence? Or just BS again?
This is the "second" of the descriptions (a more local description) of the mine location. (You still there?)
3- "...travel 1 league south by the land of the valley of grass to a canyon which "enters" the valley from the east, continue this canyon east to a peak rounded and barren of growth, and from the peak measure 1,600 varas to the northeast."
The "--" lines infers that the following statement is connected to the previous statement, which I think means that you travel from the "entrance" of the Weber River 1 league, or 2 1/2 miles, south by the land of the valley of grass. The Valley of Grass is Kamas Valley (see Garcia's Map.) Two and 1/2 miles south of the Weber River "entrance" there is a small canyon "from the east". (I don't know the name, but it's NOT Hoyt Canyon, it's north of Hoyt Canyon about a mile.) If you follow this canyon east you come directly up onto Hoyt Peak. Wow, another coincidence! (Naw, this is all just BS, right Lost?) From the peak it says to measure 1600 varas to the northeast. (If you measure it on a map you'll be off. It infers measuring on the ground, which means going down and up steep slopes, thus shortening the distance which would be measured on a map.)
This is the "third" of the descriptions (a more specific description) of the mine location.
Lost, you say the Spanish used 3 parts to describe their mine locations, but you "assume" that the 3 parts must be on "different" documents. I think that's where you went wrong. It's all there on the Garcia Waybill. Can you show me anywhere else that this waybill matches better than the Hoyt Peak area?
Now, I don't know if the mine found (now covered) on Hoyt is the Josephine but it sure seems like the Josephine has got to be somewhere near there. The covered mine does not exactly match the description of the Garcia Waybill but it is close. Did someone else, a long time ago, try following the waybill and dig the mine now covered? And maybe they just missed the real location a few hundred feet away?
I know you think that the mine you found that the Utes blasted over is the Mine of the Yutahs, the Josephine, the Rhoades Mine, the Brigham Young Mine, the Carre Shinob, etc., etc. And yet you call all of the above information, BS? Shame on you!
