The Forrest Fenn Clues form TTOTC and Pictures of My Chase

Billybobs is 75 dog years old . He is my best friend. He has been taking the end of the chase well and he has no bone to chew.

Page 59 in TTOTC “I read the book titled Journal of a Trapper by Osborne Russel who traveled along the Madison River in 1835 outside of West Yellowstone where Hebgen Lake is now. Forrest Said he was born a hundred years too late. He was borne in 1930.

Page 59 in TTOTC Forrest says Jim Bridger’s trappers were attacked by eighty Blackfeet Indians.

Page 60 TTOTC Osborne Russel had been in those mountains for nine years and suddenly we felt we were there with him.

Hebgen Lake from Horse Butte
Is this where John Coulter hid from the Blackfeet Indians?

This is not the one but it is one of the ones of interest for my solve.

BillyBobs finds an elevation marker in the early days in Gardiner Mt.

Page 122-123 Some where is his secret spot between Watkins and nine mile hole. ” I always thought that that space was mine alone”…

Blow up picture and you can see were the Madison River comes through the caldera near the WWWH.

Page 133 The story of Gardiner’s Island following the treasure poem. Gardiner down to Yankee Jim canyon has all the types of of clues but it may be an example of the same kind of thing that happens at the Firehole.

Page 20 Were the old biddies the ones tell searcher not to go into Yellowstone Park. Not for the meek may refer to not braking laws or Meek the trapper not wanting to return after his own encounter with the Blackfeet.

For the people by the peolpe of the people. You have a republic ….if you can keep it?

Page 48 The story about washing dishes and the brown gravy. Hot water to large pots (Cauldrons) to canyon in his hands.

Page 125 Flywater “many others who have love those waters before and after me understand that catching fish is not what its about.”

Wow really ????

More to come and a comment on River bathing is best where Forrest gives us what he means by WWWH. There are many places like that in the Rocky Mountains but most line up behind Madison Junction on the Gibbons and the Firehole rivers and once there at the beginning of the Madison there are no more.
