Mountains vs Range[edit]

"Mountains" vs "Range" is not entirely clear, confusingly, the USGS GNIS lists both, more-or-less in the same area. But consulting a random assortment of print atlases, the "Mountains" version wins handily. Stan 05:28, 20 Jul 2004 (UTC)

The USGS actually recognizes them as two different ranges, with "Range" being the northern ones in Colorado and "Mountains" being in New Mexico. This is confusing but it actually makes sense, since the two parts are separated by a fairly wide gap and do not geographical form a single unit. -- Decumanus 07:29, 2005 Apr 24 (UTC)
I went ahead and separated out the two, making this article about the "Range" in Colorado, since it was primarily about that segment. Confusingly, the USGS seems to use "Range" to mean only the (higher) Colorado portion, and uses "Mountains" to refer to the entire portion south of Poncha Pass into New Mexico. That is, according to the USGS, the "Sangre de Cristo Range" is a subrange of the "Sangre de Cristo Mountains". Yikies. Separating seemed to be a good idea, based on the fact that one can fill a whole article simply about the "Range". -- Decumanus 22:32, 2005 Apr 24 (UTC)
I clarified the relationship between the "Range" and the "Mountains." Judging by the USGS topos, the "Range" stops at La Veta Pass. See the "Mountains" article for more about the names. -- Spireguy 20:10, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

How to edit Title[edit]

i inadvertantly started 'Sangre De Cristo Mountains'. it was correctly redirected to Sangre de Cristo Mountains'. Now how do i go back and edit the title? or do we just delete that version? Apainttown

We like to keep the redirects around, because they very often catch references from new material that is brought in, and it saves article writers' time hunting around for the "correct" version. Look at the "What links here" for this article - you'll see a variety of names. At a convenient moment some energetic person (perhaps even you!) will go to all the references via redirects and change them to link directly. Stan 19:37, 20 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Talk:Sangre de Cristo Mountains[edit]

The page Talk:Sangre de Cristo Mountains had been a redirect to this page, which I just removed. I also removed the WikiProject New Mexico from this talk page and put it there. -- Spireguy 02:41, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

peaks list[edit]

Hard to know what criteria to use for inclusion. Clearly listing peaks should be the job of this article, since there is no other article that contains such a list nor do most of the peaks have articles. There's 8-9 14ers in this range (depending if Challenger is counted) and 49 13ers in the whole Sangre de Cristo (according to [1]), most of which are probably within the northern SdC. Listing 30-50 peaks might be a bit excessive, although they DO all have names. I don't really think a separate article (List of peaks in the Sangre de Cristo Range) is justified given how short the current article is.—jdorje (talk) 20:46, 23 July 2007 (UTC)

Pico Asilado or Pico Aislado?[edit]

Can anyone find a good source for the spelling of this mountain? Google gives about 1.2M hits for "Pico Asilado" (Asylum Mountain) and about 1.5M for "Pico Aislado" (Isolated Mountain); both seem to be referring to the same mountain. Either one looks plausible, though the peak doesn't actually seem to be very isolated, being connected to Milwaukee peak by a short col that's only 400ft or so below its summit. Peakbagger is the main source for the article and it has "Aislado"; the article uses "Asilado", which I didn't change. Dricherby (talk) 16:43, 1 January 2012 (UTC)
