This legend goes back to the time of Spanish conquistadores and the
Aztec's of Central America.
The legend tells of Aztec warriors entrusted to protect a portion of the vast treasure created
for rituals and the worshiping of their gods. With the coming of the conquistadores, and the raiding of the
vast wealth, this chosen group was directed to carry away the treasure and secure it in such a way that the foreign raiders
would never lay their hands on it.
The journey would take them from Central America to somewhere
else. The location of that place has been debated, investigated, researched and guessed at for centuries. One possible location
is south central Utah, White Mountain and the White Cliffs area near Kanab to be exact, or so the story goes.
Somewhere on the mountain the Aztec band located a cave, in which they deposited what is estimated
by some to be $10 million in gold, precious metals, and ornaments. Once completed, the cave entrance was covered by a man-made
landslide, forever sealing and securing the treasure inside.
band of warriors then moved on, leading away any spanish who might be following. Their ultimate fate is lost to history.
The Aztec cave and it's gold has been talked about and sought out for centuries, but
is it really in southern Utah?
Fact or fiction? Who
knows? But if you've got the time, the ambition, and the luck, maybe you'll be the one to find it.
