Winter is knocking, snow is falling and it is cold out there. Cold too are the clues we hoped for on the Today Show. The treasure is safe and under a white blanket so it is time for reflection. Not much new info on the blogs as I can tell, so I thought I would put out some new ideas to kick around. First a few questions: Why has the Today Show stopped airing the monthly clues? How can Fenn be sure the treasure will be waiting for us in the spring? Does Fenn’s statement about the treasure (saying it was not buried) mean anything?
Okay, here is some info you may be able to use. There is an old road from Mammoth Springs to Gardiner. This road may be hiked and at times auto travel is also allowed. The road is seldom used and mostly unknown to visitors of the Park. There are a number of clues in that area, and it could be passed by on the way down the canyon. Joe Brown lived in Gardiner with his wife. He also lived in Cinnabar just north of Gardiner and mined just south in Bear Gulch. Uncle Joe also lived in Cooke City outside the north east gate of the Yellowstone. This is the gate closest to Cody Wy. and Cody is frequented by Forrest. Now for you history and art buffs, keep in mind that the poem has many references to people’s names and places. For instance, the Wise River off the Madison, not far from Firehole; Brown who painted the Mammoth Springs, and Ranger Brown of the Yellowstone. There it is, some old and some new ideas. I have three new places to look and one is closer to Mammoth than it is to the home of Brown but it fits with Warm Springs up at Silver Gate. I feel Forrest took a drive in the fall after attending a meeting in Cody. He went into the Yellowstone and hid the treasure within 500 ft of the highway , and got back in time for lunch with his wife in Cody. Am I sure of this? No, but that’s my intuitive side being expressed.
I wonder why bloggers who follow my blog are not making comments here, on this blog? If there ever was something that I have written to offend please let me know and I’ll make amends. Finally, I would like to team up with those looking in the Yellowstone. I believe it is near or in the Park.
Please, someone start a blaze and warm up our winter. Give us something new to get excited about.
