Name for NM Peak

A couple of names for you, I think being on a published map is a legit source? Thanks for the hard work!

PT 12060 outside of Taos Ski Valley (Wheeler Peak Quad) is shown as Gavilan Mountain on my copy of Sky Terrain's "Taos: Wheeler and Latir Peaks" Map, 2013.

Neighboring 11849 on the same map is shown as Columbine Mountain

Updated - thanks Mike.

Any other names that aren't on other maps? Look like some handy maps to have for that area where access can at times be a crapshoot.

I will look through that map again and see, we were mostly looking at peaks around the Wheeler area so I didn't look as closely at the rest of the map. I'll let you know if I see anything.

I live in Taos and have not seen these names on any other maps. I suspect the map maker picked these names because 12060 is near the top of the gavilan Trail and the other is near the top of the columbine Trail. Dick Oestreicher
