history, starting in the 1660's 'Blaze' was a term used to describe cuts in trees used to mark trails in the woods, (I also believe although I'm not certain that it may also be used by firefighters to refer to a spot where trees have been removed to hamper forest fires. You'll have to fact check this as I'm unsure) Either way go back to the Browns Creek area and pay closer attention to the trees!

Hheheh Pretty sure my dad figured out where it is, might go to find it. Funnily enough it took my dad like 15 minutes to find on google maps where it *Might* be. So sad people have died for it, hopefully we can find it! Even if we cant get it, it will be a fun adventure!

I mean, they're doing this with the mindset 'an 80 year old man can't do things this hard'. Did they even look up on Mr. Fenn when they started. Some folks are pretty damn tough even when they've reached 80. Just saying tho..

My father and I used to live nearby a Rocky Mountain. We used to go on these hikes, and I hated them. About one year ago, we decided to go fishing. The water was waaaaaaaay to wild, however i fell in and fell saw a very small box. It was heavy, but I pulled it out. I had no clue it was of this value. I currently have it in my attic. I had no idea until I saw this video.

The only way you'd ever find that treasure is if they cut down all those trees, leveled the terrain and dig it all up. Nature has sadly taken over so it maybe lost forever or someone found it maybe.

You guys need to look into the murder of Catherine Cesnik. She was a nun who taught at a school outside Baltimore, Md. The whole thing is a supposed coverup by the police and Church. It's technically a cold case but those invovled believe it was a priest who was afraid Cesnik would come forward with allegations against him for molestation and pedophilia.

I believe they should try looking again, maybe try and ask Fenn a question or too about even if they were in the right area to start with. I think it'd be great to see anyone find this treasure.

guys, so there’s a place just north of SANTA FE called moreno valley (home of brown), which is just next to a huge lake called Eagle Nest Lake (no place for the meek) if you follow it south you find a super twisty creek (no paddle up your creek) and if you keep following that south you come to a village called Angel Fire (the blaze) at which point the creek is blocked
