Where in Wyoming do you think the chest was hidden?

Don’t get into the weeds here. Keep your response simple. The goal is to determine which part of WY is the most popular guess for where the chest was located…

Simple answers on this page are best…no solutions…no details…just a simple geographic description of the neighborhood…

For instance, you might say:

Near the Madison River in Yellowstone Nat’l Park
Along the Green River south of Rock Springs
Near Moose outside of Teton Nat’l Park


Please don’t use locations outside WY.
