Where are some lost treasures in New Mexico?
New Mexico is one of those states that has many legends
of outlaws, Spaniards, cowboys, and Indians all of whom battled for their right
to own the land. However, to do even deeper there are also several tales of
lost, buried, or hidden treasures throughout all of New Mexico.
Some of the most tales include the following:
Horse Mountains or Caballo Mountains
Sometime during the Indian uprisings, Indian raided
a group of Chihuahua-Spanish. During this particular raid, they killed everyone
in the group. The Indians of course had no need for the valuables they stole
therefore, they took the gold bars, silver and jewels by horse and mules to a
spring that runs through Caballo Mountains. Here they buried the loot under
various big rocks in the Canyon.
As the legend goes, a very large treasure of the
Aztec Indians is hidden in the Capitan Mountains. The treasure is the form of
gold bars and rich ore is estimated at around $25 million. It is believed to be
hidden in either a cavern or cave.
A group of freighters were on their way to
Independence, Missouri on the Santa Fe Trail. From all the stories, they had
heard of restless Indians in the area attacking travelers they choose to bury
their valuables. The men had in their possession 25 bags of gold coins worth
$150,000. They buried this treasure along the Santa Fe Trail between Ute Park
and Cimarron, New Mexico. The good or bad news according to how you look at, the
men were attacked and only one survived just long enough to tell where they had
buried their treasure. His explanation was that they had buried the gold coins
close by three large rocks. One of the rocks he said was half as large as a
house. To this day, this treasure is still buried along the Santa Fe Trail.
