We were inspired to place a series of caches here after reading the following story about hidden treasure in this area:

At Castle Crags State Park,there is reputedly a treasure taken by Indians who attacked an army mule train bearing bags of gold pieces to be used to pay soldiers at the northern forts. The Indians feasted on the mules, then carried all the gold and stored it in a cave. Years later, one of the last of the tribe, an old women named Nancy, made periodic excursions of several days duration up Castle Creek and would return bearing 20-dollar gold pieces. She would never tell where she got them, and always eluded those who tried to follow her. The secret died with her in 1912.
