Woman Searching for Lost Dutchman’s Gold in Arizona Rescued Twice in 3 MonthsBy Rocky Thompson on February 27th, 2013
Searchers found 51-year-old Robin Bird lying in mud along the Bluff Springs Trail at 11:30pm unresponsive and suffering from hypothermia and severe dehydration. Authorities say she would not have survived the night. The hiker was on a quest for the Lost Dutchman’s Gold, a storied cash of gold rumored to be hidden somewhere in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. In December of last year, the hiker had also called in for rescue, though under less dire circumstances, and authorities had hoped she’d learn not to seek the Dutchman’s Fortune. Will she have to pay for this rescue? Unlikely, but if she does, it’ll be easy to pay off once she finally finds all that gold.
