Hey all, I will keep this terse as I am posted on the concrete ground outside a small closed library in Magdalena Village, NM. In short, I will be heading into the Gila Wilderness to climb Whitewater Baldy in search of a population of S. austromontana that may have burned in a recent fire. New Mexico is a beautiful state, full of mountains and desert. There is no water here, and already the fire danger is high. Time for adventures.
