What makes Muir Way maps of Utah unique?

When you purchase a map of Utah from Muir Way, you are not purchasing a generic print. Unlike mass-produced posters, we custom print every Utah map using archival inks and fine art paper certified to last 100 years. The artwork of our maps themselves is designed to bring new light to the beautiful terrain they feature. For example, our elevation maps incorporate hand-shaded relief and Digital Elevation Data with historical map terrain for a unique 3D effect on a flat surface, and our hydrological maps depict every river in the state--even intermittent streams--and every body of water over 0.2 miles in diameter in crisp detail. We create beautiful, heirloom-quality maps meant to last for generations.

Does my Utah map come framed?

It can! You can purchase your Utah map professionally custom-framed with real wood, or unframed if you prefer to use your own. If you’d like to purchase a framed Utah wall map, there are several different wood finishes to choose from. If you’d prefer to use your own frame, all of our maps come in standard sizes for easy gift giving.

Does a Muir Way map of Utah make a good gift?

Yes! Our custom-printed maps of Utah make the perfect gift for outdoor enthusiasts, to commemorate anniversaries, or as a thank-you gift for someone special. Memorialize the experience of a special holiday to the Great Salt Lake, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, or any of the other spectacular Utah landscapes. One of our state relief maps can be a perfect graduation gift for a student about to leave home for the first time, or a reminder of home for someone from Utah but who no longer lives there. Our maps also make beautiful corporate gifts that will remind your clients or colleagues of you every time they see it.

Where should I display my Utah map?

Our maps are designed to offer crisp, eye-catching detail whether viewed up close or across the room. Hang a framed wall map as a central focus or purchase several maps in a similar style or from a particular region and arrange them near each other for a complementary series. Make a series of the Arches Relief Map, the Arches National Park map, and the Arches National Park 1959 USGS map, for example. Our hydrological maps come in several colors or the classic black and white, and our geological relief maps feature vibrant colors. No matter which you choose, you’re sure to find a Utah map that will look right at home.

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

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

Utah Relief maps - Our relief maps of Utah bring historical map landscapes together with modern technology to show Utah’s landscapes in a new way. Using Digital Elevation Data and hand-shaded relief, we custom enhance vintage maps to create a 3D effect on a 2D surface. Compare different time periods with the Utah 1937 Relief map and the Utah 1980 Relief map. You can also focus in with one of our National Parks relief maps like the Canyonland Relief map, the Moab, Utah 1969 Relief map or the Zion Relief map.

Utah elevation maps - Our Utah elevation map uses Digital Elevation Data from the USGS and hand-shaded relief just like our relief maps to create a high-contrast 3-dimensional effect in stunning black and white.

Utah hydrological maps - Our hydrological maps showcase the intricate network of waterways, from sprawling lakes to narrow tributaries that flow into larger rivers. Trace Utah’s waterways on our Utah Hydrological map and you’ll see every body of water greater than 0.2 mi in diameter. What makes our hydrological maps unique? 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. Map available in black, blue, or green. Want to see the ‘big picture?’ See our Lower Colorado Regional Hydrological map and our Great Basin Regional Hydrological map. We also offer the Pacific Northwest Regional Hydrological map and the Upper Colorado Regional Hydrological map.

Enhanced vintage Utah maps - If you like vintage maps, you’ll love our Utah Territory 1876 map. Unlike our elevation maps, Muir Way historical maps don’t feature enhanced elevation effects, but they do feature a record of history beautifully restored to retain its vintage charm without the wear & tear. Our vintage Utah maps are also custom printed using archival materials.

Utah Topo Series - If you like skiing or snowmobiling, you’ll love our topo maps. We offer a series of 5 topographical maps of mountains and resorts that use USGS data to show the contour lines of the mountains. A single white dot represents the resort location. The result depicts the dramatic elevation changes in a simple and elegant way. Each line of our TOPO map represents a particular elevation, so you can determine the degree of a slope by how close the lines are to one another, allowing you to relive those breath-taking slopes Included in the series are Solitude, Utah, Powder, Utah, Canyons, Utah, and several others.

What are some prominent features on the map of Utah?

Utah has a number of prominent geographical features including eroded sandstone arches, alpine forests surrounded by red rocks, the Needles rock formations, the Great Salt Lake, and many others.

The Great Salt Lake is the largest saltwater lake in the Western Hemisphere. Located in the northern part of the state, it is nearly 75 miles long and is home to millions of waterfowl, shorebirds and brine shrimp.

Utah is also home to Bryce Canyon. Home to millions of hoodoos, spire-shaped rock formations, the area is in southwestern Utah. Despite being called a canyon, it is actually a collection of giant natural amphitheaters.

Many other areas of the state feature astonishing natural sandstone formations. Along the Colorado River are the arches of Arches National Park. These are 2,000 natural sandstone arches that cover the desert landscape.

The Colorado River cuts through the southeastern half of the state. One of the major rivers of the southwestern United States, in Utah it runs through slickrock formations. This area is characterized by narrow canyons and slippery sandstone formations.

What are the regions in Utah?

Utah has three main geographical regions:

  • The Rocky Mountains - The two ranges of the Rocky Mountains that run through the state are the Uinta Range and the Wasatch Range. Interspersed throughout the mountains are lakes and flat-bottomed canyons. The Uinta range includes Kings Peak, the highest point in the state.
  • The Colorado Plateau - The plateau spreads across the southern part of the state. It contains marvelous natural formations including ancient volcanoes, buttes, canyons, and plateaus. Monument Valley’s many red mesas and rock spires will be familiar even if you’ve never visited Utah. The imposing sandstone buttes have appeared in many western movies and are one of the most photographed areas on earth.
  • Basin and Ridge - This region covers much of western Utah. It includes many small mountains and flat desert plains called basins. The area is semi desert with salt flats, sand dunes, lakes, and many other interesting geographical formations. The Great Salt Lake is part of the Basin and Ridge region.
