Do You Believe in the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine?

After more than 100 years of searching, nobody's been able to find the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine, which is supposed to be located in the Superstition Mountains.

We bring this up because one of the most recent unsuccessful gold hunters, Robin Byrd, had to be plucked out by a search-and-rescue team -- for the second time in just a matter of months.
