This is the Enchanted Forest in Altadena, CA...near Pasadena.
[UPDATE! February 23rd, 2013: My $5 are gone...again, and they didn't take the time to email me...again. Also, ppl have now tagged the inside of the mine...due to such disrespect, I will no longer be leaving treasure there anymore]
[UPDATE! January 12th, 2013: I put another $5 in the tunnel, whoever took the last one didn't email me...grrr]
[UPDATE! December 8th, 2012: I put another $5 in the tunnel, but I put this one waaay in the back this time. FYI, the homeless man still lives in the first tunnel...do not disturb him!]
[UPDATE! September 29th, 2012: I was filming the moon and stars from 2:00am - 5:30am. At exactly 3:33am all the coyotes starting howling, the most horrible noise you ever want to hear in the forest when you're alone. Lesson learned: never go alone!]
[UPDATE! July 7th, 2012: As we walked by McNally Tunnel again, the man was still living inside. Please be careful everyone when crossing the tunnel. This time, we didn't say anything to the man and he didn't say anything to us, so just LEAVE HIM ALONE!]
[UPDATE! June 30th, 2012: As we came up to the McNally Tunnel (5:08) my friend looked inside and saw a man living in there. My friend said, "There's a hobo in the tunnel", he repeated it again, then we heard a loud bellow of a man's voice yell "I'm not a hobo!". We ran as fast as we could and crossed the river, the man came out of the cave and yelled "Say that to my face you little punk!". Be very careful when you come across this tunnel and please, don't call him a hobo.]
[UPDATE! April 7th, 2012: I put another $5 in the tunnel, happy hunting!]
[UPDATE! March 12th, 2012: The treasure has been found! =) Late night Temple City High School adventurers Rudy, Nasser, Joseph, Angel, Kim and Angela made the journey into the tunnel and came out winners. Congratulations!]
[UPDATE! March 3rd, 2012: The treasure was no where to be found, it may have washed away =\ so I put another treasure, this time I wedged it between some rocks, however the plastic bag is still visible =) happy hunting!]
