Where are some lost Colorado treasures?
Doll Rock Formation Treasure
As the story goes, somewhere along the stone cliffs above the Purgatorie River
around 12 miles from Old Bents Fort just a bit northeast of Las Animas there is
a treasure buried. The treasure that can be found here is eight burrosí loads of
fifty-pound gold bars that were buried by Spaniards.
The legend states the gold was buried around 300
feet from a weird arrangement of rocks, many claim the rocks are in the shape of
a doll or at least as close as you can get to a shape of woman. This pile of
rocks stood 30 feet high. Before, the Spaniards could retrieve the hidden gold
they were all killed most likely by Indian attacks.
The exact whereabouts of the doll rock formation is
questionable as some say that it is on the northwest slope of West Spanish Peak
in northwest Colorado in LaVeta and others claim it is on the northwest quadrant
of East Spanish Peak.
Devilís Head Mountain
You can find Devilís Head Mountain about 30 miles
north of Woodland Park. Hidden caves, thick brush and trees, and gulches consume
the entire area. Because of the ability to hide just about anything here during
the 1800ís this area was full of all kinds of outlaws, bandits, and various
other bad guys.
The stories and legends abound about the many
treasures hidden here by all kinds; the problem is no one has found a clue of
just one gold piece. However if you go west from Sedalia on Route 67, then south
on Rampart Range Road, and then go another 10 miles to Devilís Head road and
begin exploring you may be the first to find more than just a gold coin you may
hit pay dirt.
