This is the story I would love to be true. Forrest read about one famous hunter, trapper, explorer and one hell of an athlete. Ran naked for his life from a tribe of Blackfoot before hiding in a Beaver Lodge. Colter started out with Louis and Clark he is considered the first mountain man and best known for being the first European to visit the Yellowstone. He found Colter’s Hell which is near Cody. Many people didn’t believe his tales. For me this is the best story about a boy checking out a beaver lodge like his hero did. Might be where John Colter hid . Now at twelve Forrest goes in there alone.
From there I saw fishermen, sage and pine a few cottonwoods ; a swimming hole and a place to hang out. I saw a river and a creek a marsh and in the distance the notch in the caldera called Madison Canyon to Madison Junction. And I see Beaver Meadows a treasure of pelts for John Colter a treasure put back from Forrest. Everything comes back to where it started treasures new replaces treasures old.
That’s my story and I am sticking to it. The real solve doesn’t have to be this one but this one is a great story and a great ending
