I am trying to locate Mining Camp Edwards or any reference to it. It is located, in general, North of Winston, New Mexico. It was in the abandoned state in 1886 and was in Taylor's Gulch (can't find this gultch on any modern map).
Any help will be appreciated!

Max: If you take a gander at USGS Iron Mountain Quad, you'll find a trail up Edwards Draw maybe four miles north of Winston off Highway 52. That's the best I can tell ya. Bet ya two bits that's where your camp was though. OJ

Old Judge,
Thanks for the reply. Yes I know about Edwards Draw Rd. In fact, I drove up the road into the mountains on a day when the weather was forecast as clear with highs in the 70's and lows in the 40's...we were snowed out!
This camp was located in Taylor's Gulch and I figured it must have been changed to Edwards Draw Rd. at some point but I have no documentation to confirm that. We are planning our next trip in a month or so, so in the mean time I am still fishing for any info. no matter how small.
Thanks again for the input.
