    "The poem is like many of those stories in that it reflects his point of view and his emotions on a journey
    that was important to him." -Jack

    I’m convinced that this is the correct solve. Jack won’t mention what the blaze is because of how unique the plane is. Well done.

    My only hang-up is how Jack was able to nail down the exact section of forest if he couldn’t see a shimmer off the downed plane. Maybe there’s only one spot from where you can see Bomber Mountain? In all events, I’m convinced. Thank you!

      This looks to me like a rather vague set of associations. Where, specifically, do you think the hidey spot is/was? Thank you in advance. No hard feelings intended. Location in degrees+decimals (instead of minutes and seconds) would be preferred. Please accept my apology if I'm seeming to be too difficult.

        Not that vague, but a set of landmarks from a pilot's point of view. Three bodies of related warm waters, a canyon, a lake, a long creek and two of the tallest mountain peaks.

        There are only two creeks which split HL and WH. Paint Rock Creek (can paddle up) and South 'Pi'-ney Creek (you can't).

        https://www.hintofriches.com/forum/t...ewis-and-clark

        One might start around 44.450,-107.051 and continue along the line-of-sight of the blaze.

          Thank you for the coordinates. I don't see anything notable there -- or nearby -- that I believe would serve as a landmark to guide someone precisely to that spot. And I don't understand why
          that location would be very special to FF. But good luck to you if you search that place.

            The reservoir itself would be the special spot, but not a good spot for hiding treasure (or a body).
