Was out exploring in the Superstition Mountains and came across a bunch of old home foundations dating back to a time when the Superstition Mountain range was a hot spot for mining. But the tunnel under this home was new. What is down there?

Just like you - I watched Legend of the Superstition Mountains on the History Channel - and I thought it was a bunch of crap. So I went out on my own to try and figure it out - ultimately debunking certain aspects of the TV series.

Most of us learned about the bat cave near Canyon Lake by watching the reality series on History Channel called "Legend of the Superstition Mountains". Was it all hype or was it truth? Check out the 2nd installment to my debunking series. Notice - Everything in this video is purely my own opinion and I invite you to make your own!

Part 2 of our Bradshaw Mountain Trips with Kevin Leonard from Bradshaw Mining Tours. This is our second trip to the Bradshaws – and with good reason. The Lost Dutchman, also known as Jacob Waltz, arrived in these mountains in 1863 and within a few weeks, had already filed his first claim on what he called the Gross Lode on September 21, 1863. He then went on to file the Big Rebel in 1864 and the General Grant in 1865. In video 9, you saw that this area is full of mines. We know that Jacob had 3 himself. But for some reason – a reason that none of us can figure out completely – he left the Bradshaws and his partners and would spend the rest of his life in the Superstion Mountain area. Did Jacob hear rumors of the Peralta Family while in the Bradshaws? Legend says that in 1847 the Peralta’s were massacred by the Apache, leaving gold ore scattered about on the desert floor. The Peralta’s are said to have had 18 very rich mines – and for me – I believe Jacob wanted in on that bonanza. Jacob made a permanent residence in the Salt River Valley in 1868 and from 1872 to his death in 1891, Legend says he worked one of the richest gold mines known to man. Folks like Tom Kollenborn have done a lot of research on The Lost Dutchman and Frank, Woody and I thank him for allowing all of us to build from his tremendous research. facebook.com/BradshawMiningTours http://www.desertusa.com/mb3/viewforum.php?f=31

DJI Phantom 3 Professional in the Superstition Mountains / Canyon Lake and some of the valley's on the west side of the range. Music by Steve Jablonsky "My Name is Lincoln & Optimus" For those interested in the rules about flying a drone in the wilderness area, I have met with the Mesa Ranger District in person to inquire. There is only one "law" all the rest are suggestions. The Law: "You may not take off / land / operate from within the Wilderness area"" I directly asked "May I stand outside of the boundary and fly the drone into the wilderness area" Law Enforcement Ranger "Yes you may, just be courteous of other citizens and do not land or take off from within the boundaries"
