|107.64756°E is incorrect. Try putting a longitude of -107.64756 so the mountain is in the Western Hemisphere and the coordinates are in Colorado, instead of the Pacific Ocean.|

|Thanks, but aren't there some big peaks in the bottom of the Pacific?|

|First, welcome to SummitPost. |
Nice start to a page; however normally, you need to have climbed a mountain before submitting it. That way, you can also submit the route to the summit and have more intimate knowledge of the mountain. Guidelines for submissions are in the FAQ.

|Alan, Your point is well taken. Storm Peak is first on my list this summer. I wanted the page because, as I stated, Storm Peak dominates the view from my cabin and I feel a personal attachment to it. Maybe a poor excuse, but true. I've set out to climb it but have been turned back twice by the threat of lightning, a prevalent situation here in the San Juans during the monsoon. Thanks for your input.|

|I climbed Storm Peak last summer and could help out by giving you some stuff for this page if you'd like. I found some scary, terribly exposed, loose scrambling there (following the Ormes route) but I've since learned of at least one better route.|
Lucky you with a cabin in the San Juans. For some reason Silverton is my favorite Colorado mountain town.

|Sarah Simon||Colorado page ideas|
Welcome to SP, and thanks for contributing.
You can get some great ideas for building solid contributions by taking a look at Mountains & Rocks filtered by State = Colorado and sorted descending by score.
Let me know if you've got questions or wish to bounce some ideas off of someone. I'm happy to answer inquiries, etc.
PS: Maximize the use of some of your nice photos by embedding them in the page content.
