Millionaire’s Treasure Still Hidden in Rocky Mountains
I thought this was fascinating a man says he buried treasure in the Rocky Mountains.
A millionaire from Sante Fe, New Mexico said he hid a treasure chest full of gold and precious gems worth 2 million dollars. He wrote a poem, which he calls his treasure map and he says it will lead you right to it.
Sadly, two people have died looking for the treasure Paris Wallace, a pastor from Grand Junction, is the second Coloradan to vanish while searching for a $2 million treasure.
According to the book, the treasure is hidden in the Rocky Mountains north of Sante Fe, New Mexico. He said it could be in New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, or Montana.
The man behind the treasure is Forrest Fenn an 87-year-old Millionaire.
This is what we know the box is 10 x 10 inches that's not very big and it weighs about 40 lbs. Forrest Fenn wrote a book called The Thrill of the Chase and he gives out clues in a poem in the book.
The book has been out eight years and thousands of people have gone looking for the treasure. The good news is that it is still out there and Fenn said he did not hide it anywhere dangerous. He also said to try to simplify it and that one person came within 200 feet of it. It's out there!
Forrest Feen gives all of the clues in a poem he wrote:
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 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.
So why is it that I must go
And leave my trove for all to seek?
The answers 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.
