  1. Ennis Lake and Bear Trap Canyon

    The no-go area around a dam (in relation to WWWH) has always been kind of gray, IMO. For stream/creek/river convergence purposes where the cold water from a dammed reservoir mixes with warmer water from a different stream/creek/river, that point of convergence would be WWWH would it not? I think the "not associated with a dam" refers to the lake/reservoir created (and the dam doing the halting) which was leading to people doing dumb things around dams. I'd have to look again at the geography of Ennis Lake to have an opinion specific to it as it relates to it's dam proximity.
  2. Interesting. Thanks for clarifying his comments. Beyond posting it, I haven't had a chance to look at it much further. Just out of curiosity, is what you've shared recently found info or was this all from when you looked at it at some point in the past?

  4. Posted by Bookworm in a post on Dal's Site. "my big “pre clue” from FF’s book TTOTC was the 50 miles. For me the 50 miles lead me straight to WWWH which is where Ennis Lake enters Bear Trap Canyon. It has nothing to do with Ennis Dam because that’s another 8-9 miles down river. For me the 50 miles was the key to find WWWH."
  5. Posted by Bob Miller in a WWWH post on Dal's site. "went digging for the meaning of “waters”. definition includes “mineral springs”. After searching all of the states I came across one particular spring that looked interesting. Potosi spring in Montana. If you look up the word “Potosi” you will find it means “riches, fortune, etc.”"

"I recently shared my WWWH on the blog: it’s the Blue Hole, in Santa Rosa, NM, and nearby Perch Lake, both scuba diving destinations and spring-fed lakes (their source springs flow into the lakes, and then halt)." ***Disclaimer: This WWWH is South (and East) of Santa Fe. Stephan was aware of this and stated that the remainder of his clue interpretation took him more than 8.25 miles North of Santa Fe.***
  7. Llaves, NM

    Posted by E.C. Waters in a WWWH post on Dal's site. "Llave is a word that is key. Llave is a faucet, where warm waters would halt. Llave is also a griffin for some reason, like a golden dragon (coat bracelet) might appear in Spanish heraldry. Llave is like “leeve”, for whatever reason he spelled it like that."
  8. Gallatin Lake - YNP

    DPT adds: "But I like WWH next to gallatin lake at crowfoot ridge. A crowsfoot is the 3 lines on a face next to the eye. They collect tears and as you get tired and weak they show more. Ok , old age marks-haha. A crowsfoot is also a wrench that the guy in the picture of page 50-51 is holding. He is wearing an apron and the wrench has an F on the one side. Crowfoot was also a native American Chief. Had to do with the 7th treaty."
  9. Gallatin Lake - YNP

    Posted by E* in a WWWH post on Dal's site. "I believe Gallatin Lake could be WWWH,…because it is the SOURCE of the VERY COLD (colder than the Madison or Yellowstone) Gallatin River,…at 8825ft,…and that lake is located outside the Yellowstone Caldera Boundary"
  10. Posted by Puzzled on Dal's site in a WWWH post. "It is unique in the fact that on this Plateau are two canyons carved by rivers moving in opposite directions, and an non existant divide between them. One river runs west and the other runs east and it is the only place in the entire world where two rivers start in almost the same location and run in different directions. It is called the Unaweep Canyon. Una means one, as in “I have gone alone”. Weep could be interpreted as “warm waters” (tears)."
  11. From a post on Dal's Site by Bill. I think it's probably been discussed before in various places, but it's not one I've looked at closely so it'll at least be new to me.
  12. Posted by Michael Hendrickson in a WWWH post on Dal's Site. "Take 285 to 111, north of Ojo Caliente. Follow 111 about a mile north of La Madera. There is a bridge a little past the spring. I was using the “where warm water salt” theory. also AS I the “I” = one. GONE ALONE the g”one” al”one” = 111 “i” also could mean a spring. There is a small canyon down from the spring."

  14. By E.C. Waters in a comment on a WWWH post on Dal's Site. "Tibia, a bone in one’s calf, has a Spanish meaning when paired with the word “agua”. “Agua tibia” translates to “warm water” in English. If one then begins it where warm waters halt using references of anatomy, one may go to the end of a tibia and find oneself at “The Knees” in the Sleeping Ute of Colorado, or at the spot I like very much, a lovely roadside pullout in YNP near West Entrance with a sign titled “TALUS” (44.64666, -110.93089). Talus is the Latin word for anklebone, but also has another meaning in geological terminology as “a sloping mass of rock fragments at the foot of a cliff.” This spot, by the way, is within the realm of Nine Mile Hole, which 9 miles is apparently too far to walk. Nine Mile Hole is also rumored to be a top-secret flywater location for Mr. Fenn, and TTOTC page 122 has a couple of photos of his father in the area, one specifically next to a large boulder at Nine Mile Hole. And someone here has mentioned talus as a potential clue for heavy loads. It would seem to me an amateur archaeologist and a YNP Nine Mile Hole fly fisherman might put these two together pretty quickly and feel rather clever."
