Be careful around Coronado National Monument: the rangers around there
have had considerable trouble with poacjers and drug-runners.  Tell them
ahead of time what yoiu are doing; that *should* work, but I wouldn't
put my life on the line over it.  I know a couple researchers who were
quite boldly harrassed by both NPS and FWS personbnel who were firmly
convionced that they were the only ones who could legally be in the area
(the road between Canelo and Hereford).  With friends like that, who
needs enemies?
