    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.

    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?

    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. :rose: Condolences to his loved ones.

    This is fascinating! The guy who hid the treasure has already said he was 80 when he hid it and people shouldn't put themselves at risk to find it. Sad that two people have died for the cause. Here is the thread for the other chap, Randy Bilyeu, who died last year:

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...anta-Fe-4-January-2016&highlight=Randy+Bilyeu

    Paris Wallace, 52, was reported missing a week ago after he travelled to the Rocky Mountains near Santa Fe seeking a bronze chest of gold and jewels.

    Forrest Fenn, a millionaire antiques dealer, hid the chest in 2010 and wrote a poem he claimed led to the treasure.
