Thanks for the endorsement Mary Beth!
I do feel these maps are very useful for geocachers, hikers, mountain
bikers, etc. who also own a Garmin mapping GPS.
I can include the park boundaries of course, as well as add features
such as trails, water fountains, restrooms, elevation contour lines, etc.
She pretty well spelled it all out, but for those of you that would
like more information and details, you can contact me at my Yahoo
address, which is brbapb.
