Gold mines

Today leaved, for the mountain, in wanted of a old mines of gold, a great day of dual-sport that i lived.



Había oído hablar, de que en Guadalajara existían unas minas de oro, las cuales habían sido explotadas por los romanos, las cuales, quedaron en desuso hasta ya bien entrado el siglo XIX en que fueron explotadas de nuevo por una compañía minera inglesa para extraer tan preciado metal. Actualmente estaban abandonadas, investigando en internet encontré tres posibles puntos donde podrían estar aquellas antiguas minas y el sábado temprano me fui a intentar localizarla, gracias al GPS no me costó mucho trabajo localizar los dos primeros puntos, el problema es que la finca donde se encontraban había sido vallada y era imposible acceder .Desanimado después de tenerlo tan cerca, fui al último de los waipoints en el que por fin después de andar por una angosta senda, descubrí lo que parecían las ruinas de la mina y un río de aguas cristalinas. Por sorpresa, no estaba solo en el lugar, me encontré con dos jóvenes estudiantes de ingeniería de minas, que con sus bateas estaban buscando pepitas de oro en la orilla del río, me pidieron encarecidamente que no revelase el lugar para evitar su masificación o una posible fiebre del oro, les dije que por mí no se preocuparán que sería una tumba y este es mi pequeño relato de una buena mañana de trail e investigación. En la próxima entrega voy a buscar un pueblo maldito también en Guadalajara , en el cual, relatan que hay apariciones y otros hechos paranormales.

Un saludo y feliz semana.

Santi


Dejo unas fotos y un pequeño video del dia vivido
