KOLLENBORN CHRONICLES

A weekly article in the Apache Junction/Gold canyon News that always something to do with the Legend & Lore of the Superstition Mountains or the Lost Dutchman Mine.

There is also an archive section on the Website where you can go to read past articles.

Thanks amigo, yes been getting quite a collection of links to online sites - I haven't tried each one of these to be sure they still work, but of those I posted, I know they were working fairly recently. Some really good sites have gone "poof" too so now if it is privately owned I would check it before posting it.

I would bet that you have quite a collection yourself, <hint hint? :mrgreen: >

I used to have a lot of them, but they didn't survive a hard drive crash.
