moraineboy Posted October 1, 2009 Share Posted October 1, 2009 (edited) As far as the park boundaries, I like Lowell's idea of titling the map "The North Cascades". If you left the boundary in you could put in the caption "North Cascades National Park Service Complex, which includes North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake National Recreation Area, and Lake Chelan National Recreation Area". Those boundaries are important from a practical point of view because different rules apply and it is very confusing to most people, so here is an opportunity to show where the boundaries are. On that tack then, perhaps the NRA and USFS boundaries should be shown...get's cumbersome and busy rather quickly. So, on the other hand..the political boundaries are artificial, don't lead to an aesthetic map, and may change anyway if the American Alps Legacy movement goes anywhere. How about a title something like: "The High Country of the North Cascades Ecosystem" ? Or...physiographically speaking the panorama doesn't cover the whole of the NCascades but it does cover the "The Crest of the North Cascades" One correction: McGregor Mtn should be shifted right. It is the high point on the west side of the ridge. I think you have Rainbow Mtn labelled McG. Below are some requests for labels, that I don't think will clutter it up too badly and would make the map more accessible to the hiking crowd too: Hidden Lake Sourdough Lookout Desolation Lookout Copper Ridge Lookout Crater Mtn. Lookout Mountain(maybe) or Cascade River Road Davis Peak(maybe) Rainy Pass or Lake Bridge Creek and/or PCT Easy Pass Tower Mtn Golden Horn Hwy 20 label on the east side of Ross Lake Edited October 1, 2009 by moraineboy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
