On Saturday, June 10, I was climbing James Peak (13'er and county highpoint in Colorado), and I found an item at the top that I think someone will miss and might be expensive to replace. Is there a lost and found site for climbers? Strange request, I know, but thought I would try.

A significant number of people who regularly climb Colorado peaks use the FourteenerWorld.com Forums.  It's a member-only Forum (i.e. there are dues to pay to join), but if you email Steve Hoffmeyer (the webmaster) at [url=mailto:webmaster@www.fourteenerWorld.com]webmaster@www.fourteenerWorld.com[/url] , I'm sure he'll be happy to post a notice like you posted here and help people get in touch with you.  Or, PM me and I'll post something there for you.

They have numerous subheadings to choose from. Chances are good you are within 6 degrees of freedom from the unlucky hiker who lost the item

Aren't you the county highpointer with the very nice colored maps on your site? I think you explained on here how you did that, but I couldn't find the thread. Care to share again?

First of all, here's a plug to a great map repository: the Perry-Castaneda Map Library at the University of Texas, Austin:

Perry-Castaneda Map Library.

They have some basic b/w state maps with county boundaries (and US maps w/ state boundaries). Right click on the image, 'save as' onto your desktop (save as a .gif), then right-click 'open as' in paint to play with the colors. And that's that! You can use my maps, too - the basic images are public domain.

Hope this helps.
