Subject: [ShaverMystery] Finding the cave near "Table Mountain Ranch" in Wyoming
For those interested in locating the cave mentioned in Theo's story
at
http://www.softcom.net/users/vtown/coloradospring.html  (Shavertron.com>Contents>Mundus Subterraneus) the most
famous location for any Table Mountain in WY seems to be the one
located in the Grand Tetons: "Grand Teton National Park/Targhee
National Forest" as described at
http://www.peakbagger.com/peak.aspx?pid=R17

Here is a list of Table Mountain locations in WY from TopoZone (
http://www.topozone.com/viewmaps.asp?method==place&
placename==table+mountain&statefips=V
).  Obviously there is huge range covered, as the latitude alone
varies by nearly 4 degrees:

What would be most helpful is if one could find the old Table Mountain
Ranch property first and then compare it to whatever Table Mountain is
closest to said property.  There is actually one listing for such a
place in the TopoZone database:
Place                        County  State        Type        Elevation*  USGS
Quad      Lat            Lon
Table Mountain Ranch      Albany      WY      locale      unknown          Buford      41.016N
105.336W

The Laramie and Albary locations for Table Mtn seem to be the most
probable fit, assuming this Ranch is even the same one in the story.

My apologies for the lousy formatting of the tabular data.
