heart of sky
I have always like using the National Geographic maps. Whether it was during our hikes in Glacier NP, Yellowstone and with this map most recently starting our adventure of climbing 14ers in Colorado. The waterproofness is great and I have yet to have one rip despite the frequent times I fold, unfold and manipulate the map into different shapes to accommodate my needs. Highly recommend these maps!

We used this map for our adventures in Great Sand Dunes Park and some offroading in the preserve. It was great! Wish it included backcountry campsites in the preserve though
