The Thrill of the Chase Treasure Hunt and Random Words from Forrest Fenn 1/29
I love how they encourage each of us on our own journeys of The Thrill of the Chase treasure hunt.
Here they are:
The bitterness of the cold outside is bettered by the warmth of the little fire at my side, but much more comforting is the ambience of it. f
Forrest’s hidden million dollar treasure filled with gold and other incredible relics waits to be found– somewhere out there in the Rockies. Who will find it and when? I wonder if those thoughts were passing through his mind while he was sitting peacefully by his fire.
We know Forrest hid his treasure for those of us who would be daring enough to ‘Chase’ after it. His treasure poem inspires many of us to explore places and things we have always longed to do, but just didn’t take the time. And although there are many side paths we can get lost along while doing so, we know we can always return to his Treasure Poem when we realize we might have strayed off too far.
Many of us can recite Forrest’s treasure poem by memory, but it is nice to read over it for mind a new thought might fall into place of an old one, and lead us to the end of his rainbow, and treasure.
Forrest Fenn’s Treasure Poem:
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.
Best of luck with all that you seek! Treasure the Adventure!
