Somewhere on or near Miller Creek in Josephine County, Oregon, is a lost cave that contains a vein of gold ore, which assayed a fantastic $415,000 to the ton in 1878. The discovery of this underground vein was made because a mule loved huckleberries.In the summer of 1878 Karl Meyer, a German mineralogist, was prospecting in southern Oregon. When his mule was missing one morning, Karl headed for the nearest huckleberry patch, a few miles from his camp. After trailing the mule along Miller Creek, he found where it had turned off. At this point in his tracking, it started to rain, really rain, the type Oregon is noted for.
