Bumble Bee hiden cache
(America, Arizona)

According to legend, two hundred pounds of raw gold lies at the bottom of a creek near the junction of Slate and Squaw Creeks close to Bumble Bee. In Bronco Canyon about four miles east of Bumble Bee, it is said that almost 80.000 $ in gold lays waiting for discovery. In the 1800s two miners had set up camp in the canyon, prospecting the area. Soon the prospectors got lucky, finding a very rich vein of gold quartz. Mining that vein they began to take out loads of gold, storing it under a large rock near their camp. As winter approached, they began to make plans on returning to their homes. However, before they could leave, a party of Apaches attacked them, killing one, while the other managed to escape.

The surviving miner did not attempt to return to the site until the indians had been subdued. However, he was an old man by then and before he could make the trip he fell ill, telling the story of the gold on his deathbed.

Several years later, a Mexican sheepherder found the campsite in Bronco Canyon but didn't know of the mine or treasure. Other visitors to the area have reported seeing a crude arrastre in the same region. However, the mine and buried treasure, located 4 miles east of Bumble Bee, has yet to be found.
