My first expedition into the Superstitions was a recon. Since then I have discovered more information on the Lost Dutchman's mine.
Heading Westbound on the Apache Trail.
Once we saw these old markers we knew we were close.
From here on out we will be on foot
Mike and I are armed with guns and knifes. I carried 24 rounds of ammo on me as well.
Let's do this!
We obtained a detailed map of the Superstitions with possible locations of the Lost Dutchman's Mine
My map reading skills are pretty good since I use to be a professional mapping pilot.
Heading into the canyon where many men have vanished
Our latest information was that the Lost Dutchmen's Mine was near a cave in a canyon with a view of Weaver's Needle. We spotted this cave and decided to climb up to it to see if it fit the description
Patti and I in the cave
We could see Weaver's Needle from the cave! This is good!
We were under constant surveillance by Apache Attack Helicopters
We found it!!!!!!
