Mav’s Analysis:

The more interesting part of this hint from Forrest has nothing to do with it being North of Santa Fe — take a close look at “it’s in the mountains somewhere north of Santa Fe.” Do you think the word “mountains” was a generalization from Fenn? We don’t.

Think about  it. TTOTC is one of the primary, if not the most primary source for hints / clues. Hidden in the mountains is the only blatant hint he gives before the actual poem.

There’s enough supporting evidence in related hints to conclude: if your solve is not in the mountains it’s likely the wrong solve. Check the related readings on other mountain related quotes.
