Good Luck finding "buried treasure" anywhere in the area. With the hundreds of prospectors from various eras, geology students, Native Americans, and desert hiker/explorers who have combed and romped the areas for the last 150 years anything that ?was? there would be LONG GONE. But, c'mon! why/how could half dead, ignorant pilgrims climb a mountain vs getting saved? They probably would have died trying to take treasure (if they had any) out of their demonstrated ignorance and greed. (Isn't that why they left the established route and experienced guide to beat others to the CA gold fields?)
