The Thrill of the Chase. It all started in 2010, when Forrest Fenn, an 80-year-old art dealer, hid a treasure chest in the Rocky Mountains north of Santa Fe, the capital of New Mexico. The 10x10-inch chest, worth millions, was filled with jewelry, rare gems, ancient artifacts and, of course, gold.
Fenn said he had always wanted to lure people into the wilderness and give them the opportunity to embark on an old-fashioned adventure in search of riches. That's why he wrote a 24-line poem containing nine clues. He said that only the person who can decipher the clues will be able to find the treasure chest.
The poem was included in his self-published memoir. As I have gone alone in there.
And with my treasures bold. I can keep my secret where. And hint of riches new and old.Begin it where warm waters halt. And take it in the canyon down.
Not far, but too far to walk. Put in below the home of Brown. From there it's no place for the meek.
The end is drawing ever nigh. There'll be no paddle up your creek. Just heavy loads and water high. If you've been wise and found the blaze.
Look quickly down, your quest to cease. But tarry scant with marvel gaze. Just take the chest and go in peace. So why is it that I must go.And leave my trove for all to seek? The answer I already know. I've done it tired, and now I'm weak.
So hear me all and listen good. Your effort will be worth the cold. If you are brave and in the wood. I give you title to the gold.
