I'm getting ready to leave for PTC. One of the things I'm going to get at Tooth of Time traders is the wall topo of Philmont (IIRC it's 1:50000 quad).


There's a caution on it about not using it for navigation; instead use the 1:24,000 USGS specials. Funny. When I was backpacking as a youth, all USGS provided for us in certain sections of the Sierra Nevada was 1:63,500 quads (1 inch to 1 mile), and the military standard for ground tactical hi-res maps was 1:50,000 (that's paper era, not digital era).
