Possible Starting Location? - BrownBearDeposit - 08-24-2019

Hey everyone, new to the forum. I was thinking about "warm waters halt," I noticed that many people talk about the hot springs. But what about the cold springs? I looked on google maps and there were several cold springs that mark a pretty consistent line across the middle of Wyoming. Could this be a good starting point? Anyone else notice this that would like to expand on this?
Or maybe direct me to a thread that's already talking about this? I've been searching but I can't find anything on it.

A place where "warm waters halt" could be quite broadly defined. For
example, tears are perhaps "warm waters", so a cemetery may qualify.
But there are cemeteries in about every county, and it may not be very
widely known where a prominent cemetery or group of them exists. So
it might be helpful to think of an alternate thing that can be described as
"warm waters".

I believe that WWWH can mean a place that is relatively large (the sky
has been mentioned, because it contains clouds), or relatively small --
such as an entrance/gate to a facility.

It's likely important that one think in terms of "warm" and define it well.
Also, the word "halt" should be well-defined. A dictionary should be a
friend.

WWWH doesn't absolutely have to be a small, specific place. But it should be near a canyon. This is crucial. Good luck.
