Made from combining 12 historic USGS topographic maps together with modern elevation data, our Black Canyon Relief map will captivate you with its endless details that appear to pop off the paper, adding depth and dimension to the vintage maps.
We selected maps from different years throughout the early 1900s that were digitally patched together, creating a composite that encompasses the entire park. Once merged, a mosaic of the topographic maps was formed from the different colors and styles of the individual maps. The map comes to life with the addition of hillshading derived from advanced elevation data that gives the landscape a 3-dimensional appearance. Lastly, we overlaid the current boundary of the park in red, which oftentimes differ from the older versions of the park borders that appear on the vintage USGS maps used.
Discover Black Canyon in a whole new way with a bird's eye view of the park while you search for new adventures and relive your old ones.
We consider our maps to be works of art, so we print and frame them accordingly. We offer two choices of print surfaces: fine-art archival paper and stretched canvas.

The quality of the map and frame were beyond my expectation. It is really a beautiful piece; more like a work or art than a map. Even my kids have commented positively. Highly recommend. I need to find more wall space so I can buy another one from Muir Way.
