“The clue is the treasure is hidden higher than 7… than 5000 feet above sea level.” – Forrest Fenn
There’s really nothing of value in this hint from Fenn… a bit of a throw away, as are most of his “Today Show” hints. Fenn even mentions these hints are throwaways in another interview, “The Today show wanted clues every time I was on, but I made sure none of them would take anyone closer to the treasure.”
We know from other hints that the treasure is hidden “somewhere in the Rockies,” and all of the Rockies are 5,000ft above sea level.
