CO-NM-AZ-UT-CO

April 27, 2012

Dear All,
We’ll be traveling in CO, NW NM, N AZ and S UT in May-early June. I am familiar with the area, but wouldn’t mind another look at, say, spotted bat, mountain lion, or spotted skunk. My wife has never been there. If anyone has recent tips for the area, or is planning to do some interesting research and wouldn’t mind us stopping by, or knows someone who is planning some research, or knows someone who knows someone… and so on, I’d appreciate such information 🙂
