    • Thanks for the replies
    • That’s a beautiful specimen.  Congratulations.
    • This is an ironstone, but is it a fossil or a concretion? i am not sure because of this little branch on the side of the rock. I have never seen concretions with a such shaped branch. Thanks!
    • May 5   1937     Part Four      When we got back to camp Will and Hudson were talking and I could tell they were upset. John and I showed them what we’d found. I told them it looked like a treasure map. It was a bit hard to read and was written in Spanish anyway but the drawings looked to fit our creeks. John and I figured we ought to try to figure out if the X was indeed on our mountain. Will and Hudson wanted to explore with us so I drove back up to the dig area and told Ben to stay on watch. I showed him the map. Then I went back down to camp and filled Sarge in on our discovery. He was amazed. We started down at the area where the north/south creek met the east/west creek and stepped off to the first northern distance marker. Each distance location was marked with a rock and X. I found the first one easily. It was the only large boulder on the east side of the creek and it had a faint marking on it. I came up with 300 paces. All of the markers looked to be large boulders marked with an X and were all on the eastern side of the creek. The final treasure marker indicated it was located on the west side of the creek against the mountain.  There were six markers all equally spaced and then the three rocks equal in distance to one more marker spacing to make a total of seven to the supposed treasure. I continued to pace out the distance as best I could. There was no way anyone could do this accurately but it would at least put us in the ballpark of each marker location and eventually to the treasure if there was one.     TO BE CONTINUED .................
