About Mountain Zip

This site reviews special places in the western mountains of the US. We have chosen to define these locations with their associated Zip Code.  These mountains are our home and they are one of our favorite
pursuits.  The choice of defining each area by Zip Code is based on the fact that some people identify their home with their Zip Code. Some Zip Codes are famous, like Beverly Hills, 90210 (or Dr. 90210).

For several years starting in 2000, National Geographic magazine ran a regular monthly feature to focus on the community in one ZIP Code.  During the 1970s, signs at the municipal boundaries of Newton Falls, OH (44444), proclaimed "Newton Falls has Zip!" The slogan is still in use on their web site, 44444.com.

Each summer on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder, CO (80301), there is a 'busker' (street performer) who challenges the crowd to give him a Zip Code he can't connect to it's actual location. He often adds a favorite dish at a restaurant or a point of interest in that particular Zip Code, and we've never seen him stumped.

The highest town with a Zip Code is Leadville, CO (80461). With an altitude of 10,152 feet, it is a real mountain town.
