The Little Red Gulch

Near Arbuckle Gulch.

Per Alexander Robertson Andrews, one of the original twelve prospectors:

". . .When they came to what is now known as 'The Little Red Gulch' they found it rich beyond anything that any of them had ever seen and their hunger was forgotten in enthusiastic joy at their discoveries. They found one piece weighing over an ounce and several five and ten dollar pieces in the Little Red Gulch, lying in full view where the water had washed the dirt and gravel away and left the bedrock bare. They also found a branch of what is known as the North Fork of Arbuckle, which heads near the head of Little Red Gulch, to be very rich and got one piece that weighed an ounce and other coarse pieces in the gulch. The prospectors were delighted. . ."
