I thought you might like to know about this—-
Dan and Frances Hedblom are searchers and also a husband and wife artistic team who work almost exclusively with copper, coaxing stunning textures and colors out of otherwise dullish plain brown sheets. The results are beautiful and appear in fine galleries across the country.
The Hedbloms work out of their studio in Minnesota. Much of their work is inspired by the dramatic north shore of Lake Superior. You can find out more about them and see stunning pieces they have created HERE.
In celebration of Forrest and The Thrill of the Chase the Hedbloms have created a limited edition piece called “Where Warm Waters Halt”.
There are only 80 of these individually hand crafted pieces. Each is 17inches tall and 8inches wide. Dan says that they wanted to capture the mountains, forests and streams of The Thrill of the Chase. In my opinion they have certainly done that. I think these are gorgeous. Each piece is signed and numbered on the back and comes with a certificate of authenticity. You can see more photos of this limited edition piece on their website HERE.
You can purchase one of these limited editions from their eBay store, which is HERE.
They are available for $100 plus $20 for shipping. Since there were only 80 made and I know they have already sold some…My guess is that they won’t have much trouble finding owners for the few remaining so if you’re looking for something beautiful, unusual and also about the Chase…you should probably order one quickly…
Forrest Fenn will be celebrating his 88th birthday on Wednesday, August 22…
Thanks for being here Forrest. I am in awe of your accomplishments and sincerely appreciate your treasure hunt…it has provided opportunities and joy for hundreds of thousands of searchers…including me!!
Prairie Flower has been promoting a forest for Forrest campaign for the past two years…
She has a new compilation video of the growing forest…HERE
*** UPDATE: So far we have 22 new trees to add to the forest for Forrest!
If you participated last year, you can still plant or dedicate another tree this year. The deadline to partipicate is 08/20/18.
Let’s Continue to Grow Forrest’s Forest!
Last year for Forrest’s 87th birthday many of the treasure hunters participated in creating a forest for Forrest by planting a tree in his honor or proclaiming that an existing tree now belonged to Forrest’s forest.
Let’s continue that for this year! It’s easy!
Currently the forest looks like this:
To continue the expansion of the forest simply do the following:
Plant a tree or find an existing tree that you’d like to dedicate to Forrest.
Email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Your screen name
- A photo of the tree
- The type of tree
- City, State where the tree is located
I will compile all the information and have it ready for Forrest’s 88th birthday on August 22, 2018.
You can look at last year’s compilation by going here:
Hugs to all!
P.S. Remember, don’t post the information below, you need to email it to me!
Forrest Fenn will be celebrating his 87th birthday on August 22…

You can send cards directly to Forrest at:

Prairie Flower suggests we celebrate Forrest by planting trees!
She says: “A man named Forrest should have a forest named after him. It would take an act of Congress to do this, however. So I have come up with a different idea. Let us each plant a tree in honor of him – wherever you live! (If that is impossible for you to do, perhaps you can dedicate a tree in your yard in honor of him.)
Since a forest is considered to be a community of trees, our trees will be a community in a unique way – all dedicated to Forrest!”
Prairie Flower has posted the beautiful video of the Forest for Forrest tree dedications everyone sent her. It’s here:
Thanks so much!
