Great summary as usual @Jules

I would also add this link to USGS Maps besides the ones available thru National Geographic.

https://viewer.nationalmap.gov/basic/?basemap=b1&category=histtopo,ustopo&title=Map%20View

This link was posted by @GenieSoul and was inside the link by @snookted

The USGS link includes vector layers of the quad maps which increases the usefulness in laser work.

As always so much inspiration, knowledge, and “^&*! how did I miss that?” in this compilation.

Thank you very much @Jules
