Forrest Fenn Treasure Poem and Map – a one-page solution found on July 8, 2019 by Luttleboy@gmail.com
THE blaze FOUND BY THIS SOLUTION CAN BE SEEN WITH GOOGLE MAPS!! SEE GPS COORDINATES BELOW!
“The poem is…an architectural plan. f”…”The poem is a map to the treasure. f” “The treasure is out there waiting for the person who can make all the lines cross in the right spot. f” “…look at the poem as if it were a map, because it is, and like any other map, it will show you where to go if you follow its directions. f”
There are 3 lines that can be drawn (drawing nigh) on a good map, between 3 points listed in the poem:
Waters Canyon, CO, hidden by dividing the words on two poem lines
Marvel, CO, hidden by using marvel as a verb in the poem
and Casa Marron in Santa Fe, NM (home of Brown in Spanish), hidden by using English term for Spanish name.
There is a 4th implied point “blaze” or Angel Fire, NM which is on the same line with Marvel, CO.
Waters Canyon, CO: the vanishing point that is at the south (down) end of the canyon, similar to what artists use on paintings. The left diagonal vanishing point lines then read: “I hint where it in the Too Far to Walk.”
(Draw two magnetic lines at 9 and 8 degrees for New Mexico, as pilot Forrest showed in his book.)
(Reading downward diagonally with lines: "there bold, where,--and Waters Canyon", [CO is only state in search area with this].
Begin (place) the top right corner of the poem-as-map on the boundary line of CO and NM, about GPS 37.00N, -107.11E
Cut out poem on the red outline as shown, then use as a map (slide rule pointer) to the treasure. It should be about 3” wide x 6.25” long.
“it” refers to a printed cut-out of the poem-as-map that is placed on the “warm waters” boundary CO/NM, approx. N37.0,
E-107.10865 at the Navajo Rio, and a line drawn from Waters Canyon “down” Rio Grande canyon to below the home of
Brown-- Casa Marron, the 2010 location of a designer/manufacturer in North Santa Fe, NM.
“Not far” (on a map about 10”) “but too far to walk” (on land about 170 miles).
“No place for the meek” is a steep, crooked, muddy, dirt road.
“End drawing nigh” means make a drawing to find the end of the search. “No paddle” means a nearby creek (Vallecitos Rio) is too small for boats. Heavy loads are RVs and farm trucks on a mountain road. Water high is the stream at elev. 8800 feet. (Blaze is a word that is key and refers to 3 locations: the town center of Angel Fire, then the word “blaze” printed out in the poem, and a mark at the treasure chest physical location. When the printed cut-out is put in place wisely, “blaze” should fall on the line (from Waters Canyon to a spot near the center of Angel Fire), and marks the blaze where the chest is located. THE BLAZE IS PAINTED ON THE TOP OF A LARGE ROCK, LOOKS LIKE "nn" with long handles pointing northwest.
Use Google Maps to get the GPS coordinates 36.6355, -106.2105 (N36d 38’32.136”, W-106d 12'37.69”). Now zoom in to see the blaze!!
“Starry cant, with Marvel,gaze” would mean to gaze on a line from the town of Marvel, CO while looking upward toward Waters Canyon near Mesa Verde. Then draw a line from Waters Canyon back through Marvel and up to Angel Fire, creating a 2nd line, on which the word “blaze” in the poem, will fall. As this line runs through the center of Marvel, gaze with marvel at this confirmation of your solution! Also a line from Angel Fire to Casa Marron should form a right triangle like the shadow on front of Too Far to Walk, a confirmation that this is the right solution. "Well" would be the more correct adverb, instead of "good". The cold could refer to Agua Fria (below Casa Marron), or Cold Water in English. Also the cold mountain stream near the chest. If well, then dell or dale now must be the rhyming word, a small wooded valley or canyon, which is the location of the chest.
o <---(Casa Marron)
“Put in” (place) this lower left corner of the poem-as-map below the 2010 location of home of Brown (Casa Marron, furniture designer and manufacturer in 2010). The actual structure of home of Brown may disappear, but the location will live on in old maps for at least 100 years. Several lines serve as padding to make the poem print-out vertically longer. The critical line length (“blaze”) does the same for the horizontal direction. The original poem appears to be 3” wide by 6.25” long. The poem should be adjusted (zoomed proportionally) so that the upper right corner fits against the CO/NM border on your specific map, while the lower left corner fits on a point just south of Casa Marron. If your printer does not have a zoom function, then you can use Google Maps and the Measure function to create lines on a screen map (that can be enlarged or reduced as needed) on which you can tape your printout of the poem. I think the poem printer font size should be as identical to the TFTW book as possible, maybe Monotype Corsiva size 15 bold italic font (“in there bold” as it says in the poem), and Google Maps should be set to about 175%, then made smaller with scroll wheel mouse. But the font can be 8, 10, 12, or 15 (“read the poem 6, 8, 10, or 12 times”), depending on size of your “good map”.
