The coordinates reported for this collection, either (39.779909,-105.225473) or Verbatim Coordinates: 13N 0480692E 4403354N are on the west side of North Table Mountain just above the Quarry Road near the North Table Mountain trailhead. This is inconsistent with the collector's location description indicating the east side of North Table Mountain, using the Fairmont Trailhead on Easley Road. A location in a ravine 2-3 miles northwest of the also seems quite inconsistent with the topography. Not sure what to suggest for better coordinates, perhaps just a generic location on the east side of North Table Mountain, somewhat northwest of the Fairmont Trailhead, something like (39.7840,-105.1954). See also comments on Stanley Smookler Coll. No. 213, made the same day, also on the east side of North Table Mountain.
