RE: For Map Lovers
Nice find. Thanks!

Users should be aware that the summary page showing the entire quadrangle shows elevations in meters, while the four subpages of the quad shows elevations in feet. At least for the one I tried. This might trick some new searchers into thinking an area is not high enough to meet Forrest's 5,000-foot minimum elevation.

Someone should let National Geographic know this (not me). Smile

Just checked a second map -- same problem.

However, a trip down memory lane from past search efforts: Graveyard Canyon, The Bench, etc. Smile
