If you’ve been wise and found the blaze, look...
Forrest Fenn’s treasure poem has six stanzas and nine clues.
The 4th stanza:
The fourth stanza contains four commas and one period, making for one single sentence.
Only two other stanzas are comprised of a single sentence (1 & 3). The final few stanzas are believed to give you the fine-detail which will allow your to pin-point the treasure-chest once you’ve arrived at the final-location (you’ve been wise and found the blaze). So, all of the clues in this stanza might refer to things that you could only recognize with ‘boots on the ground’ at the final location, in person.
That means that all of the study in the world isn’t going to help you. Maps aren’t going to help you. Satellite images aren’t going to help you.
But, of course, that’s all supposition and you can’t possibly ignore half of the poem, as there’s probably a clue or two in there that you need beforehand.
Right up there with Stanza 3 as the 2nd most important stanza in the entire poem. VERY IMPORTANT
