Culebra area 13ers and 12ers

I hope to arrange one or more hiking trips on the Cielo Vista Ranch this summer. The ranch website states "Special climbing and hiking excursions can be arranged by contacting the CVR staff." Last year, I had email discussions with someone (name not known) on the staff. He/she was agreeable to the idea of a custom trip, but wanted a group size larger than the 2-3 people I had lined up. Furthermore, their rules (after the recent ownership change) were that only day trips are allowed. That makes some peaks (e.g. State Line Peak) problematic, but a number of peaks are possible.

My top priority is a trip with the following three 13ers and one 12er:
Vermejo Peak (13,723')
Purgatoire Peak (13,676')
Alamosito (13,466')

Another trip of interest would be for the following two 12ers:

Due to conflicts with hunting trips, summer hiking on the ranch is only allowed in June and July.

Let me know if you are interested in doing these peaks this summer. If we can get a group of at least five people, I'll contact the ranch.

I would also be interested but already have some commitments on the calendar so would depend on the date selected.
