    Connection Church:

    This non-denominational environment brings people together who are seeking the Lord's guidance in their lives, seeking help to better their lives, and seeking acceptance from loving families of God.

    Uh oh it's 98 in Espanola right now. If he's lost I hope he found a place to lay low until it cools down.

    Remote & rugged area, very sparse population.

    I do love New Mexico but there are a range of tough environments within her borders.

    Praying for your family & your safety, Pastor!

    This article states his backpack was found downstream in the Rio Grande River, and a rope stretching across the Rio Pueblo, which is a tributary of the Rio Grande, is also believed to belong to him.

    It has been very hot the last few days in this part of the state. It was 100 in Albuquerque today. I hope this man has survived. If he's near the river so he can get water, and isn't fatally injured, he may have a chance. The terrain can be unforgiving here, and it can be deceptive, not looking as dangerous as it can actually be. It's very easy to slide and for rocks and soil to give way. There are lots of sharp rocks and steep, sudden declines in addition to the heat, and I hear the rattlesnakes are pretty bad already due to the increased rains over the last couple of seasons.

    There's a large wildfire happening right now just west of Espanola, called the Cajete fire, that they're struggling mightily to slow down. I had this crazy idea that this man started a fire to try to attract help, but it seems like he was northeast of Espanola instead of southwest of it.

    Very, very bad scenario here.

    Also ... just how many people have died while looking for this "hidden treasure"? If the reader has to cross dangerous rivers, scale canyons, and risk life and limb, at what point should the author go get the treasure himself and divide it among the families of those who perished in pursuit of it?

    Colorado pastor goes missing searching for NM treasure

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a pastor from Grand Junction who has been reported missing in New Mexico was searching for a famous hidden treasure, the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports.

    The newspaper says that New Mexico State Police Lt. Elizabeth Armijo confirmed family members told authorities that Paris Wallace had come to the Española area to search for a chest of gold rumored to be hidden in the mountains.

    The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel says the rough terrain around Española is the southernmost territory targeted by adventurous individuals seeking the treasure of Forrest Fenn.

    Pastor dies in search for famous hidden treasure


    Police in northern New Mexico say they've recovered the body of a Colorado pastor who disappeared last week while searching for buried treasure.
    The fortune, hidden somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, has lured many treasure hunters. And Paris Wallace, of Grand Junction, may be the second person to die in the search.

    So very sorry, RIP Pastor Wallace. Condolences to his loved ones.
