map of the Gila NF (which covered a lot of area) from

laying around when I talked to them. I used DeLorme
south of Silver City, but I did buy a couple USGS
topos of Big Hatchet peak (which unfortnately did not
show how thick the cacti and yucca and other thorny
bushes were... it also didn't show all the little
10-foot cliffs, as that was the resolution of the
I'm hoping to make some better maps of So. NM and
include them with my other ones.
