I'm sure that there are a few errors here and there but I've gone over the thing multiple times and have tried to eliminate most of them. The point were taken off the wall map as well as the sectional maps. The maps as it turns out do not exactly match. Some points were taken by direct measurement in 1996 and 1999. Most of the points were cross-checked against Delorme's Topo USA Ver2.0, which by the way has a rather large number of Philmont camps and trails built into the program, all the major ones as a matter of fact. The measurements were suprisingly close. If people have an extra $100, it's a valuable planning tool. The elevations are all from the maps. I made a clear plastic grid for minutes and seconds on Excel to do the measurements.
