    These areas are definitely off limits and people think they can sneak in and give the rest of us a bad name

    I found an old article from about 100 years ago, two men in a cemetery late at night. All due to a local story of a treasure buried near a grave.

    He should've already known the cache was found last year.

    I worked in Yellowstone in the summer of 94. Of all the places this moron could've dug he picked this one, he deserves jail time for stupidity. The rangers are literally everywhere in this park. I was cleaning a couple trout in an obscure spot on Yellowstone lake when I looked up and one was standing over me, I didn't even hear her coming. She checked the length of each catch and was on her way. Yellowstone is one park you don't want to mess around in. I guarantee you this fool didn't dig very deep before the rangers were on top of him.

    Ya no kidding. You have to have the blessing of the government before itís ok to desecrate the final resting place for golden treasures.

    Seriously though...I wonder if there is a lesson to be learned here with this buried treasure/book scheme.

    Does anybody know the standing death toll?
