[cdt-l] Brian's Triple Crown -- Call for help in New Mexico

Brian contacted me this afternoon.  I told him I am prepared to assist.  He
said he would be contacting me tomorrow about his travel plans; a 3 day bus
ride when we talked.

During that conversation, he was planning on heading to Chama; I advised him
to bring the snow shoes.  He may have changed his mind since then and
decided to start in the south as indicated.

My understanding is southern Colorado, and I assume northern NM, has snow at
about 100% of normal.  I also expect the San Pedro will have a fair amount
of snow.  Mt. Taylor has snow and I assume the Gila is covered.  If anyone
has good knowledge of snow depth and snow condition on these areas including
low temperatures, you might post it and forward to Roy.

Brian asked whether his 10* bag would be OK.  I think that should cover it
but ???  Forecast for Chama is 55* tomorrow; lows should be 20* or so lower.
