Mr Fenn's treasure hunt poem


I have just discovered Forrest Fenn's intriguing website where he has placed a poem containing nine clues to the whereabouts of a bronze chest filled with more than a million dollars worth of gold coins, jewels and other precious items collected over a lifetime.

Mr Fenn composed the poem believing he was about to die.

Three years ago he concealed his treasure somewhere in the Rocky Mountains after he was diagnosed with cancer. And the treasure is still out there waiting to be discovered.

But the best news for Mr Fenn comes from his doctors; he has beaten the life threatening disease.

If you live too far away to join the hunt you may still puzzle over the poem and read what others have to say about it. Here's your LINK to the starting line at the Old Santa Fe Trading Company.

  1. I don't believe in buried treasure do I? Well I might just pop over and have a look.

  2. You could try to solve the clues in the poem first, but since Santa Fe is an unique town with no buildings higher than two stories it's probably worth a visit even if you don't find the treasure. I'm sure they'll be glad to welcome you there. Better pack your 'irons' thought ... just in case.
