I have found a lot of very cool things, especially on the AT in March. However, the absolute best HAS to be a set of like-new Lowa Renegades in my size. I wore those until I wore them out and then bought another set. Best boots I've ever tried on.

Can you imagine leaving behind a $180.00 set of boots? It boggles the mind.

the neatest thing/place that i ever found while hiking was an undisturbed grouping of a desert-bighorn horn/potsherds/corn inside an alcove deep in the desert-southwest. I hope that it is still there, and undisturbed, although i'd be surprised if it is.

We have never found a wedding ring, but anyone who does much hiking will come across some interesting finds.
This week Gutsy found a like new Mountain Hardwear Goretex rain jacket and I used it today while hiking 10 miles in the rain.   
A few of the many things we've found while hiking-- 
AT Data Book, several years old but we still use it--near Springer
Like new Ridgerest sleeping pad--near Springer 
Mountain Hardwear down jacket, in good condition--in VA
Patagonia long johns caught on a bush on a side trail heading down from Mt. Washington.  They later summitted Mt. Rainier with me. 
Travel bag for toiletries.  I use it for travel, but not for hiking.
floppy hat
about five abandoned cheap tents, 5 different times and places--AT and Foothills Trail
Two large garbage bags full of food abandoned by Boy Scouts--Muskrat Ck Shelter.  We donated to a hiker box.
One of the most exciting finds was an unopened can of black olives that we added to our one pot meal!
