    I think I am down the right path, though. Review my work, please, and find
    any flaws or suggestions to pass along to me.....I am all ears to them.
    It would be very helpful if you could take the verse line by line and match it to the parts of the image you're talking about. it's hard to follow anyone's ideas unless you use this method.

    Using Google Earth, go to the intersection of Lindell and Skinker. West of there is the Washington University Entrance.
    NOW the area between that area is the image/map that is shown in the stomach/breast area on the armor, Basically starting at the SMALLER circle below the chin that looks loke the circle on the armors LEFT shoulder.
    NOW that said.
    Line 1 to 5 describe this area, and starting at the ENTRANCE to the school proceed to the Intersection of Lindell and Skinker.
    The HIGH POSTS ARE THREE, I am not sure about, could be light posts or something like that, But the School is one of the top 13 in the country, in a variety of subjucts, including LAW, among others, and the HIGH POSTS are three could be referring to chancellors or their main focus of education.
    OK, from the intersectionProcede SOUTH on Skinker, this is referring to 6 to 8. There is now, and has been for a long time, the notorious GOLF COURSE. When I looked up ACE in the dictionary, it stated that ace also refers to a low score on a golf hole, ACEing it. giving you a HIGH score for that hole, and on the WEST side of Skinker are several 15 story or taller Apartment buildings, referring to the Sounds from the Sky.
    The next 3 lines had me a little stumped, for awhile, until I realized that he was not using JEWELS to refer to any of his stuff, but to the JEWEL BOX, in Forest Park, and the OBJECT of Twain's Attention, I did some more research, and discovered from a news report from the New York Times dated March 21, 1922, that there had been a RARE BOOK COLLECTOR named Gabriel WELLS, a rare book dealer, who had paid a record amount for a "NEW DEFINITIVE COLLECTION" of Mark Twain's works, and I think this is referring to WELLS road, which runs opn the SOUTH side of Forest Park, IN JEWEL's DIRECTION, and continues on across turning NORTH. Unfortunately, this whole area was torn up after the release of the book to build Metro Link, the light rail, and I could find NOTHING on the giant pole.
    I am hoping that a visit to the park, and the Visitor Center will reveal that there had in fact been something that could be considered a GIANT POLE. Possible a Flag Pole or something like that.
    THATS my story, and I'm sticking too it.
    After confirming my thoughts on it, I will be moving on my focus to some of the other images, but they will be alot more difficult, because I lice here in St Louis, and so have access to many more local resources than I will working on any other images and verses, plus the ability to go and get visual references on things.

    Onething on Wells DID catch my eye, and I might take a look aroung that, on the SOUTH side of wells, after going on to it from Skinker, and that was a Pavilion, that has a FIRE PLACE, and FLUE, with a RED ROOF. the roof coloring looks to match the red in the "Skirt" but it also appears new, but I noticed that the color was apparent on other buildings, so am hoping that this has been a color theme in the park for awhile, and I am wondering if the Author just MIGHT have been looking at the Flue as a GIANT POLE????? Looking at the Armor, some of it does strangely resemble a fireplace..... Who knows, and in the verse, it never actually says that you cross the park, only that it points towards the Jewel, then heads north, but not that YOU or the CASQUE have to go that far......

    I found the pole, I think. I WILL be there bright and early to see, and try to find out about digging a hole.
    I heard someone somewhere mention a Probe, for checking down into the ground before digging, anyone got any ideas, as I have no idea what a GIANT step might be, unless it would be the same length as the heigth of the pole.

    Wish me luck.... Man is my heart pumping.....

    Good luck. I hope you are correct.
    Some people use a thin metal rod to probe the ground. In this heat, though, the ground had better be pretty soft to get it down three feet. The casques were buried btw 3-4 feet deep--time may have shifted that lower. You can't really use metal detectors because there is no metal in them--unless the keys have metal, but I don't think they do.

    I'm not loving this interp. For one, high posts can mean jobs, but it's more likely the phrase would refer to actual things--spires, poles, flags...something concrete. And you can't count on chancellors or the jobs in a law school to always be three--BP would have realized that at the time.

    Following up on Image 6 Verse 5. I have discovered two new confirmers that match image to the landscape in the scenic Columbia River area. I'll follow up with images later. For now i'll just describe. Citing the Lewis and Clark expidition, they came to a tall rock in the middle of the Columbia and called it Phoca Rock, which has been more locally known as Seal Rock or Sentinel Rock. I like the Sentinel reference mostly but the rock itself looks very much like the mid to lower section of Rock with Ponce on top. The top third section which ive already commented on, looks like the 50-ton boulder at the Portland Women's Forum. The interesting thing about this composition of two distinct sites into one massive hill for the image is that its also in a shape that mirrors the shape of a hairpin curve that wraps around the Crown Point Vista House (a very citadelesque building). This mirroring also fits the shape of the Florida penninsula, and seems no accident. I see a clear case for a red herring. As far as folks have gone to attach significance to St. Augustine is not the design of this red herring. Im only saying its a Florida shape and the palm tree plays into it as well. I'll have pics soon.

    Here is Sentinel / Phoca Rock, close by, just between boulder and Beacon Rock. The top section in the yellow box is the boulder, the orange section below is the transition made up by the artist, and the lower section is similar in proportion to the Phoca Rock (cool how it looks so different in both pictures, one with more flora, and notice the one tree up near the top)



    Here is a manipulation, basically a horizontal flip (keep in mind this is a mirroring) of the Vista House road shape, I blacked it out to illustrate the puzzle piece style match I spotted.

    After 3 months, my emails have received response, I'm now in touch with the right person and they have granted me permission to dig next to their historical monument. I'm a couple hours away, so it's really just a matter of making my schedule work with their staff person. That's the update for now.

    Since things have settled after a busy summer I finally phoned the archaeologist who would be assisting the recovery at the historic site. It was an enjoyable conversation but I totally drew a blank on recalling Ponce DeLeon. In the end she was more into recommending the GPR route. All in all, progress is a matter of perspective.

    I think I might have posted this before but I'm not having any luck with the search function so here is my new version of the reordered verse:

    The first chapter- Mexican American War (known as "first intervention")
    Over the tall grass - across a great expanse
    Near men - soldiers
    With wind rose - radio compass
    Written in water - message over air waves
    At the base of a tall tree - "base" as in military outpost
    Stars move by day - flagpole with US flag at site
    And a green picket fence - General Pickett
    You can still hear the honking - seabirds
    Shell, limestone, silver, salt - abalone
    Sails pass by night - light house
    Even in darkness - radio compass
    Like moonlight in teardrops -
    Behind bending branches - military exercise area where the men do sit-ups
    Years pass, rain falls. - reservoir

    Acrostics: "TO NW WA SAYS SELBY" which applies specifically to General Pickett and his men establishing a base on San Juan Island.
