It seemed obvious to me. Warm waters. Yellowstone. Geysers and hot springs. Which one? The biggest. Mammoth Hot Springs. When I saw Sheepeater Cliffs on the map, I thought, aha, that’s no place for the meek.There’s a canyon there, too; maybe a couple. But what caught my eye was the blaze, Bunsen Peak.
This is so easy. I’d just put in below the brown wooly Mammoth, hike the trail around the peak until I could see the blaze, look down and see a marvel. I wouldn’t tarry, just take the chest and go in peace.
But, just what does a marvel, look like? And then, if it was that easy, wouldn’t someone have found it already? Hmmm.
I scanned the map. Lots of warm waters. Lots of canyons. Lots of marvels. Maybe this wouldn’t be a cake walk. Better not buy a ticket west yet.
