Jewels were buried in the Rocky Mountains. This ridge is approximately 4.8 thousand kilometers long. No one knew exactly where the chest was located, but some clues, according to the millionaire, existed. In an attempt to find a treasure, more than one person died.
A lot of people called Forrest to stop his stupid undertaking, but the man replied like this: “If people are drowning in the pool, then you need not drain it, but teach them to swim.” The media wrote of at least four victims of “archeology” in Yellowstone Park.
