I don't think Colorado was his goal, it was really Southern California where there were many southern sympathizers.  If Colorado became a goal later then he very nearly did that.  Glorietta Pass was a near thing if it hadn't been for Chivington's attack on the Confederate supply train, the Confederates would have been able to head north or west at their descretion, not bad for troops commanded by a raging alcoholic... Okay so Sibley was drunk in his wagon and the Confedrates were really commanded by Tom Green but he didn't lose his head in New Mexico, he lost it in Louisiana... get it, it's a joke, oh I slay me sometimes.
