A parting solve that I really, really, really hope is wrong!

*Each of the nine lines in poem between WWWH (1st) & the Blaze (9th) are clues
*Each sentence indicates a different mode of transportation

Sentence 1: Driving (Clues 1-3)
Sentence 2: Walking (from car to river put-in) (Clue 4)
Sentence 3: Wading (across river, then up creek to FF’s secret fishing hole) (Clues 5-8)
Sentence 4: Back on land at TC (Clue 9)

CLUE 1 (WWWH): Begin the 191 highway at Stinking Springs (thermal spring) in Grand Tetons (Jackson, WY area)

image 2CLUE 2 (CD): Take the 191 highway into Hoback Canyon
CLUE 3 (NTFBTFTW): Continue driving down the 191 highway in Hoback Canyon
CLUE 4 (HOB): Put-in to Hoback River below FF’s secret Brown trout fishing hole where I think the TC was locatedimage 3CLUE 5 (NPFTM): Wade across the Hoback River to Buck Creek at the edge of the forest
CLUE 6 (TEIEDN): Wade up Buck Creek which jogs to the left (roughly parallel with Hoback River)
CLUE 7 (NPUYC): Continue wading up Buck Creek which straightens out again (roughly perpendicular to Hoback River)
CLUE 8 (HLAWH): Continue wading up Buck Creek to FF’s secret fishing spot which is a boulder (heavy loads) plunge pool where the water deepens (waters high)
CLUE 9 (WAFTB): Exit creek at FF’s secret fishing hole where you see so type of location mark on tall pine tree where FF sat to fish

*My guess is that the TC was under the tall pine tree where he sat to fish; secret location is in a small clearing in the wood that has view of Grand Tetons.
