Legend has it that Jacob “The Dutchman ” Waltz found gold while prospecting in the rugged Superstition Mountains. On his deathbed he revealed the location of his mine to two close friends, but they were unable to find it. Thousands have since gone into these mountains in search of their fortunes, and some have died trying; the Dutchman’s treasure remains hidden today, even though maps to the possible location are on display at the Superstition Mountain Museum in Apache Junction.
