The rants of another disgruntled searcher? Or was this the actual location of the Chest?
I know everyone thinks that they have the poem figured out,,,my proof will lead you to the spot. WWWH is the start,,science says warm waters stop at 45degrees,,,45 degrees is the Wyoming/montana line,,,coincidentally the boiling river in Wyoming, changes its name at the border and becomes the gardener river,,,if you take the canyon down and put in below the home of Brown,,,there are 3 homes of Brown located in this canyon,,the first is Joe Brown Put In,,for boaters, the 2nd is located just outside of Pray Montana, and is the location where Brown trout were introduced in 1860, otherwise known as Loch Loven Browns,,the third is located east by southeast of Pray and it is the Brown Ranch,,you would have to hike in to see the small sign that indicates its location, but there it is there. Next you will travel north and then to the east,,from the town of Pray,,,staying close to the mountain range as you travel you will come to the town of NYE. If you travel or hike in this area you will discover that there is Old Nye and Nye. IF YOU ARE WISE YOU WILL FIND THE BLAZE,,,there is a Mount Wilse located at the southern canyon from NYE,,,Mount Wilse is named for a Norwegian surveyor, and it is pronounced WISAH,,which is Norwegian for wisdom or to be wise,,,while your at Wilse, there are several clues from the book that can be defined by mountains in the immediate area,,,SOMETIMES ITS WISE FOR THE FOX TO BE A HOUND, from his book,,,Mount Fox, Mt. Wilse, and Mt. Wolf are all together in a connected ridge,,No place for Biddies,,originally led me to think of a Hag or old Hag,,,Mt. Hague is due north from Mt. Wilse, and there is a blaze that stands out when viewing Hague from Wilse,,,this blaze has 2 large rocks just uphill from the small lake of apooash,,a Indian chief,,the rocks sit at an elevation of 10,196,,,fenn said between 5000 and 10200. But I've gotten ahead of myself here,,,,from Nye you travel up Stillwater creek,,,there are heavy loads due to the Stillwater mine, which is the largest producer of platinum and palladium in the U.S. RICHES NEW AND OLD,,,stillwater mine is located in Old Nye,,,Stillwater creek could never be paddled, there is a trailhead with a beautiful hiking trail named Sioux Charlie,,and 4.5 miles in from the parking lot, is a U.S.G.S. survey marker on the trail, stamped 1939, which is when it was placed there. This could also be considered a blaze, as it is a trail marker. Fenn said his church is in the mountains,,,if you are standing at Mt. WILSE and look northwest, you will see that theres another mountain named Cathedral Point, and it also has a unique blaze on its face,,,HIGH WATERS, Flood creek comes down the canyon beside Cathderal point and joins Stillwater creek,,,Cathedral point is about 5 miles in from the parking lot at Sioux Charlie, a very easy to moderate hiking trail. In Fenns book he took a picture of his shadow in a golden colored creek,,,I also took a picture of my shadow in what i believe is the exact creek, due to the colors of the rock. I will share some of my pics later. So there are my reasons for driving 1989 miles one way, to search for the chest, as I now live back east. With all of these clues I still had more questions not answered,,what is the significance of the word TARRY, what is the book reference of gypsy magic, fenn also said THE TREASURE LIES IN BLACK SKIES AND BY BLUE WATERS,, this was in an interview he gave,,,he also said ONLY THE PHANTOM KNOWS,,, in my hike and search for an easier route to Mt. Hague and Wilse, I discovered some beautiful country. I originally thought that NO PLACE FOR THE MEEK, was a general reference, as it is rugged and known for its large population of grizzlies,,, although this is true, there are more clues as Fenn the architect as I call him, placed strategically. My search of Cathderal was plausible as there is a mountain immediately located next to it named Two Sisters,,,fenn said 2 CAN KEEP A SECRET,,,I thought about 2 sisters keeping secrets, and then I went back to the 2 rocks on Mt. HAGUE,,,but what about this TARRY thing? And then i learned some very important clues were hidden in the book, specifically in the random date stamps,,some of the stamps have 039 on them and most do not, I noticed that if I used only the stamps with the 039, and also noted the page numbers, I had a partial longitude and latitude coordinate,,,but not complete,,,,what was I missing,,the crucial 45 degrees latitude,,,after I input these onto google earth pro, I was surprised to see that what I had deciphered, actually plotted out a giant F on the map,,,how could these totally random numbers that originated from dates and page numbers make an F? The answer is the architect,,,,Fenn signs all of his emails F,, surely this was more than a coincedence,,,,so now armed with this F, which actually was a F with the middle part exaggerated substantially to the left, I looked over my maps and researched google earth, and discovered another clue that led me to a website,,,www.sophiola.com,,,i learned of a young lady, that is about 17 years old, my guess, she has an art gallery, she is special needs, she is someones granddaughter, and her passion is art and butterflies. Fenn said SOMETIMES BUTTERFLYS ARE FLUTTERBYS. Coincidence here is Sophie's gallery is selling a beautiful painting that she made, named BUTTERFLY TARRY. how does this fit? Did you know that a BIDDIE is a type of Butterfly? How about this,,,as you follow rosebud creek up the canyon, you end up at Mystic Dam,,HEAVY electric LOADS, AND WATER HIGH,,,did you know that PHANTOM CREEK is formed by Mystic Lake? The Phantom Knows. But what of this black skies and blue water quote? Another clue solved,,,there are 2 mountains named Black Butte, and in between these 2 mountains lies Emerald lake,,,BLUE WATERS,,,directly in between the 2 Black Buttes is Pyramid Mountain. Fenn also said in his book,,,THAT HE WAS RIDING HIS HORSE LIGHTNING, AND BECAME SADDLE SORE, SO HE MOVED BEHIND THE SADDLE,,,,not an exact quote, but BEHIND THE SADDLE,,,or Saddleback Mountain, which is just east of Emerald lake,,,,all of this journey is contained within the Beartooth Range,,,and for the most part in a 8x8 mile area. Once you have reached NYE anyway. What about the TITLE to the Gold? When you need to get a title for something you goto the courthouse,, Courthouse Mountain sits next to Mt. WILSE. But what about the butterfly thing,,,,,and where is the treasure,,,,,I found the butterfly, and also discovered a heart made of stones on this mountain,,,,something i said to Fenn,,,You are a butterfly with a heart of stone. That's all I can say for now,,,but my "solve" covers every clue, and it coincides with other clues from the book, such as fenn saying that the horse ride he made with Donnie, brought them about 50 miles from home and they saw the biggest mountain they had ever seen,,,Granite Mountain is the tallest in the Beartooth range, and sits in the edge of all the mountains I mentioned.
