2 plus decades living in the Rockies around 10,000 ft. My first search season I lived in the Rockies completing more than a dozen botg searches in Colorado and New Mexico. Meet Fenn 2015 search season in Santa Fe at La Fonda hotel Leon Gaspard book signing. Future botg planned for Yellowstone and southern Montana. Reluctant to disclose current solutions but always ready to use quotes and logic to determine possible solutions to the clues.


Young boy "Teacher, who wrote the history books?"

Teacher "well the humans of the past, young boy"

Young boy "how do we know they got it right?"

Teacher "because they are adults and adults would never lie about the past to benefit themselves "

Young boy "so what your saying is if one of these historains got it wrong then this history book is just fiction?"

Teacher "no, young boy history is what we say it is and that just how it is"

Young boy "could there be another way to know its true, like something physical they left behind?"

Teacher" well there are archaeologists who dig up things but they just make guesses by what they find"

Young boy "so in the ground is history and I can dig it up? That seems more real then what some guy remembers of the past."

Teacher "no, young boy everything in the history books now will be there for generations to come and its all real and true!"

Young boy "but if I can dig up something that they left behind that might be different then what history says wouldn't that make this history book part fiction?"

Teacher "listing young boy, if you don't remember what is in the history book then you will fail the test!"

Young boy "but what if I don't remember it right? Would I just be remembering what someone else remembered? Seems like a lot could get lost or changed?" but what's in the ground to dig up will never change."

Teacher "you ask too many questions just do and believe what you are told!"

Young boy" I want to be an archaeologists!"

I try and look at the geography in the poem like this:
If I asked a native American directions how to get somewhere a 1000 years ago he would explain using the natural features around, which may very well be valid today and a thousand years from now.

Dear Forrest Fenn,

If you could only see one of these two things before you pass on what would it be, your special place where you secreted your treasure chest or the chest and it’s contents? I hope my question is not to bold. ~The Count

The Count,
Both the treasure and its hidden location are so vivid in my mind that I don’t need to see them with my eyes again. f

I'm starting to think the title of this thread is misleading.
If I'm planning a trip to the big sky area, are there any sites that you would recommend me to visit to improve my vacation?

- The Count

From Big Sky head toward West Yellowstone along the Gallatin River and turn right at the junction when you see Hebgen Lake. It’s a nice drive past Quake Lake to Reynolds Pass, turn left there and go by Henry’s Lake in Idaho, and left again to West Yellowstone. It’s a good half a day. Tell the people at the Dude Motel that I said hi. f

I was wondering with you creating your puzzle within you poem, are there any puzzles you do for enjoyment or enertainment ?

-The Count

Nope, just the one. f

And how about this:

Long's Peak? I'm surprised the snow is light there. I'm in the mountains north of Santa Fe and the snow is deep at 10,000'. Of course that depends on orientation.

I'm reference pikes peak

In this area specific places are know by names like, the springs, the creek, the peak and, so on....

What about this other pic I took today not far from Yellowstone on a route that Fenn sent me on:

Seems to be very familiar with this:
The ranch contains some of the most beautiful landscapes in America, with house-size rock outcroppings

But the biggest coincidence is that there is a major hint to the evil twin within this scrapbook(pidmt, this just became a moderately difficult puzzle for you)

Maybe Iron Will is right and Fenn trys to communicate with searchers in scrapbooks, nah its just coincidence Wink I'll poabably delete this post soon and hopefully the picture links work.
