What are the different types of maps of Colorado available on Muir Way?

Our Colorado maps are available in several different styles, including:

Colorado relief maps - Our relief maps of Colorado combine historical map imagery with modern technology to showcase Colorado’s beautiful topography in an exciting new way. Using Digital Elevation Data and hand-shaded relief, we custom enhance vintage maps to create a surreal 3D effect that remains two-dimensional. Choose from our 1913 Colorado relief map or our 1935 geologic relief map of Colorado where you can view variegated terrain in vibrant colors. We also offer relief maps of Colorado national parks, mountain resorts like Vail, mountain ranges, and more.

Colorado elevation maps - Our stunning black and white Colorado elevation map also uses Digital Elevation Data from the USGS to create a high-contrast 3-dimensional effect, providing crisp detail and a refreshing view of Colorado’s native landscape.

Colorado hydrological maps - Every state’s interconnected waterways tell a different story. Available in multiple colors, our hydrology maps showcase the networks of Colorado’s river systems and lakes in minute detail. On our full Colorado state hydrological map, you can to view every single river and intermittent stream, as well as all bodies of water greater than 0.2 mi in diameter. For an extra aesthetic touch, we apply a method called the Strahler Stream Order to show the hierarchy of streams as they flow from their source, with rivers shown thicker as they acquire the flow of tributaries. We also offer regional hydrological maps featuring certain rivers and their surrounding land areas.

Colorado vintage maps - Unlike our relief map series, our historical maps don’t feature elevation, but what they do feature is a record of history beautifully restored and ready to display. Our vintage maps are reproduction prints, carefully enhanced to maintain their vintage charm without the wear & tear. View our vintage map of Colorado from 1883, 1879, and our 1876 Colorado territory map.

Colorado national park maps - When you think of Colorado, you think of the Rockies. Our Rocky Mountain National Park relief map (and another from 1914) and Mesa Verde National Park map show the topography of these majestic parks in fine detail.

What are the regions in Colorado?

Some of Colorado’s geographic regions include:

  • The Colorado Eastern/High Plains - This stretch of the Great Plains running through Colorado is sparsely settled and its dry climate encourages dry farming and crops like winter wheat.
  • The Southern Rocky Mountains - These steep, rugged peaks cascade across central Colorado, peppered with coniferous forests beneath the alpine tundra. This region contributes to Colorado’s nickname of ‘the roof of the world’.
  • The Colorado Plateau - This area encompassing much of western Colorado is marked by tablelands divided by narrow stream valleys. Weather here reaches extremes on both ends of the temperature spectrum.
  • The Wyoming Basin - Leading into northern Colorado from Wyoming, this region boasts intermountain basins punctuated by smaller mountains and hills, enveloped in sagebrush and areas of shortgrass prairie.
  • The Middle Rocky Mountains - This region of Colorado encompasses a narrow strip along the Idaho-Wyoming border with mountain peaks reaching as high as 10,000 feet.
