I was browsing the web and came across an article about “10 buried treasures you can actually find.” This one was #10. A multimillionaire archaeologist and author has buried a treasure chest full of gold and other valuables somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. One of his books also includes this map with a poem/riddle. According to him, the location of the treasure appears somewhere on the highlighted portion of this map, and the poem tells you how to find it. The trick seems to be to figure out the starting point.
According to the man, who is still alive, people have successfully solved the first parts of the riddle and found themselves in the right place, but not been able to follow the remaining parts (there are nine clues in the body of the poem.) He states that people have come within 500 feet of the treasure.
In analyzing these clues, and others he has dropped from time to time in media interviews, I initially was “sure” the treasure was in or near Glacier National Park in Montana. However, I no longer believe it’s in Montana, although it’s not ruled out.
Yet more insight into fascinating things to occupy my time when I should be writing.
