Anti-hippie indeed,,, sheeesh ! and I'm trying to help you out here bitfiend,,, are you not ashamed ?
On to the meat,,,,
The Arapaho princess is one possibility
there is as well other treasures in that area.
ALSO_______ One of the riches mines in colorado is said to be in that area, but there are many mines there, and some are still open, do not think that these open mines are the one I refer to, it is covered up.
But, from your discription you gave, I feel you have found treasure markers.
I have my own to deal with at this time, or I could shoot up to Durango and pick up a couple of friends to help you on the site.
The markers tell a story, and that is not something I can convey without seeing them, and I cannot come up there right now. NEAR these markers, see if you find a low stone wall , any stones stacked about a foot and a half high running for a length.
Somewhere in the vincinity are other markers.
The markers you have come across is not the end all of them. You need more.
as far as groups who deal with Colorado treasures, try a search on MSN. groups,,, or yahoo groups, BUT,,, never tell anyone over the net, the direct and exact area of your find, never give gps cords.
There are some really shifty people.
BUT,,,, there are also honest people.
Good luck bitfiend.
Rog' ( the happy to help you out HIPPIE )
