1. This modern-day treasure tale occurred sometime between the years 1938 and 1940. Three men were employed by the State of Colorado to repair a road in the vicinity of Salida, Colorado. The actual work on the highway was being done just a few miles North of the sleepy little town in Fremont County. When word came down from the highway construction headquarters to shut down repair work for a few days, the three workers decided to stay in the area, but to do some prospecting on their own. They were merely killing time when they stumbled onto an abandoned gold mine. Salida lies where the Rocky Mountains end, coming down from the northern reaches of Colorado and the Sangre De Cristo Mountains begin, heading south into New Mexico.
