More than a map - this is an adventure story! Combines detailed map with aerial photos and narrative of three separate expeditions. This map won Best in Category (Thematic) at the 27th Annual Map Design Competition of the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping. The Glacier Travel Guide is truly unique. Each expedition's write-up contains an introduction, plus 4 separate panels of text that each describe one to two days of the trek, which are placed around the map, one panel to a side to correspond to the section of the route traveled that day. The Mt. Rainier Glacier Travel Guide offers 15 color photos, UTM grid for GPS positioning, and much more!
Currently, Mt. Rainier Maps and guides are created, published, and distributed by Stanley Maps and are being used by Mount Rainier National Park climbing rangers, the Park's Director of Communications, commercial guides, and as reference material for the Seattle Mountain Rescue organization. With detailed information on climbing tips and recommended equipment, the Mt. Rainier Climbing Guide maps by Stanley Maps are essential for anyone looking to scale Mount Rainier.
