Our map of Amer­ica’s fed­eral pub­lic lands (March 2018, page 10) ac­ci­den­tally swapped New Hamp­shire and Ver­mont. Our apolo­gies to all the Ver­mon­ters who were ex­cited to fi­nally have a coast­line. In a Novem­ber ar­ti­cle about win­ter hikes (“Bet­ter in Win­ter,” page 40) we called Colorado’s Big Dominguez Canyon “a clas­sic three-day, 35-mile route.” Ryan Staude wrote in with a field re­port. “The last 17 miles down [the Lit­tle Dominguez Creek Trail] is cur­rently a heinous bush­whack with more com­pli­cated routefind­ing than one might ex­pect,” he said. “We ended up hav­ing to find a dif­fer­ent route out of the canyon.” His sug­ges­tion for an easy win­ter hike: a two-day out-and-back on the Big Dominguez Trail. In a March story about Canyon de Chelly (“In the Right Hands,” page 74), we stated that vis­i­tors can only tour the canyon bot­tom with a Navajo guide. One path, the 1.3mile White House Ru­ins Trail, is open to un­guided hik­ers.
