This famous photo of the Sundance Kid and the beautiful Etta Place was taken in New York City after he had bought her an expensive diamond watch at Tiffany’s. The watch is pinned to her blouse. Questions remain about whether Sundance died in a shootout with the Bolivian Army, but even less is known about Etta, though on July 29, 1905 the S.S. Seguranca arrived in New York City from Panama and on board was a Mrs. E. Place. Rumors persist that she went on to San Francisco and disappeared after the 1906 earthquake.

Once inside the outlaw cave, which is on Bud Poe’s property west of Cortez, three to four men could sleep out of the weather and with little chance of being found.

Archie Hanson, developer of Indian Camp Ranch, has a dugout or cellar on his property which may have been an outlaw hangout. It’s been stabilized and no trace of a chimney or stovepipe exists. A source of heat would have been important for a prolonged stay.

Two pieces of metal, one with a cutout for a stovepipe, lie on the ground near the cave entrance, but no other artifacts have been found other than the remains of a brush corral close to the canyon’s bottom.
