Why not more Wyoming

Why not more Wyoming
Strictly speaking within "Why not more Wyoming"...

While Guernsey, Register Cliff, and Warm Springs Canyon are good matches, as map node clusters they are unfortunately filtered by the elevation rules (at least in the map node data I am using). It doesn't mean that the end point cannot be near and within the elevation rules, just that these points cannot fit.

Kirwin would be a much better fit if the blaze can be located "not associated with any structure." Here again like E.C Waters, "structure" may be interpreted. WWWH for this solution could also be loosely interpreted as Sunshine Reservoir.

Sinks Canyon seems to have been openly discussed, and several points there are also loose-fitting. I liked Sherwood Point in the area as the end point once. There were also many other supporting features, but the distance tolerance was a big stretch. "Not far" wouldn't work well, and Mr. Fenn suggests simplicity to the solution. Making Kirwin or Sinks Canyon fit seems to me to be quite a stretch.

I've not yet been more excited than E.C. Waters as the starting point.

I also visited Cokeville and hiked around Underwood Canyon. LOTS of animal bones so take a weapon if this is on your list. I wanted to visit the rumored location of the famous Fenn Cache but the rustic road (where I interpreted it to be) was fenced off. I also considered visiting the grave marker of Estelle Brown, but snow prohibited my journey. All of this was tweeted @mikebibler if pics are interesting.

Key=Imagination. Seems almost everyone is using knowledge to determine HOB. Think about it; one example: Mammoth Hot Springs=where warm waters halt. Obsidian Canyon runs South for 23 miles to Norris Junction. National Park Ranger Museum=Home of Brown. Nigh=left side(but facing north is same as heading downstream) Virginia meadows=No place for the Meek(Meeks left Virginia City to head West). Ice lake=cold. Just an example. Not about knowledge per se.

WWWH is not complex... he already told us what it is. Its called bathing in the river at Yellowstone where the Hot water geysers flow into the cold stream. There's nothing else to contemplate.

I think there is a lot to contemplate and Wyoming is certainly of interest. I do not believe that this is WWWH simply because if it were....the treasure would have been found by now.
