Try making tracks to Gila

September 21, 2008

Thank you for the wonderful article about the unbound nature found in the Southwest's Gila Wilderness ["Sheer Frontier," Sept. 14]. I was again disappointed that you informed your readers only of airline options as the best way to get there.

You failed to mention that you can go either to Albuquerque on Amtrak's Southwest Chief or to a variety of other locations on the Sunset Limited.

The next time you visit the area, take the shortcut through El Paso, rent a car and drive about 140 miles to Silver City, N.M.

Spending a day or two in Silver City can be most interesting.
