    This is a treasure hiding in plain sight, and all you have to do is solve the riddle of a poem.
    This treasure is reportedly worth $1-3 million dollars and hidden by art collector Forest Fenn.

    The poem reads:

    As I have gone alone in there
    And with my treasures bold,
    I can keep my secret where,
    And hint of riches new and old.

    Begin it where warm waters halt
    And take it in the canyon down,
    Not far, but too far to walk.
    Put in below the home of Brown.

    From there it's no place for the meek,
    The end is ever drawing nigh;
    There'll be no paddle up your creek,
    Just heavy loads and water high.

    If you've been wise and found the blaze,
    Look quickly down, your quest to cease,
    But tarry scant with marvel gaze,
    Just take the chest and go in peace.

    So why is it that I must go
    And leave my trove for all to seek?
    The answer I already know,
    I've done it tired, and now I'm weak.

    So hear me all and listen good,
    Your effort will be worth the cold.
    If you are brave and in the wood
    I give you title to the gold.

    Although there have been many attempts to decipher the riddle, including a Santa Fe woman who says she cracked it, Mr. Fenn insists the treasure has still not been found. Will YOU find it?
