Sierra Nevada Mountains-Range Series
Our "Topographic Map of the Sierra Nevada Mountains" illustrates the entire mountain range through contour lines. We believe ours is the first map of the whole range with this degree of detail and accuracy from the southern point at Tehacapahi Pass to the northern border at Lake Almanor. The map depicts the landscape through elevation, maps all of the rivers and lakes in the mountains, and traces the John Muir and Pacific Crest Trails within its borders.
These maps combine the data of hundreds of smaller USGS quadrant maps to form detailed constructions of mountain ranges. Due to the nature of the maps as art pieces, we simplified them by only including natural features; there are no roads, cities or towns, or other man-made elements on the maps except for the trail. Contour lines are closer together, and many times touching each other, in areas of steeper elevation changes.
We print all of our designs ourselves on the highest quality materials made in the USA. We use an award winning Canon ipf8400 printer with their 12 color inkset to get the most vibrant colors that will last a lifetime.
