A former Santa Fe art dealer named Forrest Fenn has hidden a treasure worth millions of dollars somewhere in the rocky mountains. If you can solve the riddles in his poem it could be yours!
Forrest created a poem to give searchers clues to the location of the treasure.
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 ever drawing 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.
The hunt can be dangerous. Up to 6 people have died-3 from Colorado looking for this treasure. Forrest has said that you can walk to the treasure and no technical or dangerous climbing is required.
This treasure hunt seems to be gaining more and more popularity as word continues to spread. If it is a practical joke maybe he has gone along with it so long that he can't back out of it. I tend to believe the treasure is real and it will be found someday. For more information on this click the links below
