Default Stuff Found On The Trail (Lost & Found thread)

Jim, I wasn't sure where to post this, but I thought I'd start an ongoing thread for things found on the trail, seeing as how I'm always finding stuff, and people are always losing things

Item # 1.....

I found these in February on the Old Strachan Trail in Cypress Prov. Pk. They are a pair of prescription sunglasses

Item#2.....

This is a little bear cowbell found on the Crown Buttress Route by Doug McKenzie and Red Green

If they are yours, drop me an email

There was another thread about this a couple years back:

https://www.clubtread.com/sforum/topi...rms=found,gear

However, great idea to actually have a lost-and-found thread. If anyone's seen a large-ish blue waterproof stuffsack, it's mine. That's about the only thing that's ever gone missing.

I lost a full set of rain gear on the Garabaldi/Back Tusk hike. (Well my friend actually lost it for me.)
Yesterday on the trail to Paton's/Coliseum we found a bag of popcorn. It's not gear but I thought it was sort of wierd.

I lost my mind several times on the trail when dying of thirst on a hot summers day but I alway's seem to find it again later

I found a faded black and white bandana tied to a tree like flagging tape just below the summit of McGuire today. I brought it home with me - nose is running and I need a new handkerchief

I've still got Murray's sunglass case somewhere from TELKWA's trip to Utah...

I lost my hat in a canyon three weeks ago and also, when it got hot, I took my heavy shirt off and hung it on a dead tree in a wash and walked off and left it. Remembered it at night when it dropped to 45 degrees. I'll miss my hat! ouch!

Found a sledge hammer near some petrified wood. Guess the person got the wood busted loose and left the hammer. Man, was that a heavy tote back to the truck! whew!

Noman and I found a pair of sunglasses tied to a tree with flagging tape yesterday just above the end of the road, as the trail starts for the final leg of the hike to the propellor cairn. We left it there.

On another interesting note, lost my Columbian Airforce cap at Elk-Thurston in May? got it back in July , found by John Z.
