Please contact History Colorado (the state of Colorado's history musuem) if you know the current location of the missing 1929-vintage bronze marker.
It needs to be returned to that scenic back road so others can enjoy it and learn a bit of Colorado history. Thank you.

For more information about the 1929-vintage historical markers around the state, visit the Colorado Historical Markers page here on the Pass Bagger site.
