So I found an 1882 map by 1st Lt G.M. Wheeler from 73-78 expeditions which show a trail/road that may have been Gotch Ear's road that leads to the Army Fort in the Malpais Mtns.

I'm fairly certain that Round Mtn is Cebolita Peak, and not too sure about that lone peak North of the trail over on the west side. What if this is the road that the party came to in which Gotch Ear told them to remember it? Seems like its the Acoma Pueblo's trail/road to go retrieve salt supplies from the Zuni Salt Lake.

Any thoughts?
