Where is the lost treasure of the Colorado Rockies?



In what is now known as Las Animas County in the southeastern part of Colorado a wagon train carrying 1,500 pound of gold ingots was attached by renegade Indians and a gang of outlaws, in 1858. The travelers fought off the would-be robbers and headed into Chacuaco Canyon believing they would elude the thieves.

The outlaws refused to give up and followed suite. There were three members of the wagon train that chose to load the gold ingots onto six mules and lead them to a rocky area close to creek. During the time that the men with the mules were hiding the gold in the rocky area, the outlaws killed everyone with the wagon train.

After hiding the gold, the three men escaped and made their way to a Mexican village that was nearby. They did go back to retrieve the hidden gold, but once close to their destination they were killed by a party of Ute Indians.

Today, the treasure is still hidden away in a rocky area near the creek in Chacuaco Canyon in the southeaster part of Colorado.
