A Treasure Hunt is Over


A New Mexico man [Forest Fenn] hid a treasure 10 years ago in the Rocky Mountains as a ploy to inspire people to get outside and participate in an experience (a true treasure hunt). The treasure was valued at $1 million or more.


Finding it however was costly. Not only did it stay hidden for so long, but as many as 4 people may have lost their lives looking for it, and many others spent money and time trying to find it in vain. The person who found it didn’t want to be identified.
