Custom-made for the OML, printable onto 8.5x11 paper:

Map 1 (Basin/High Chisos)
Map 2 (Juniper Cyn/Eastern Dodson)
Map 3 (Dodson)
Map 4 (Western Dodson/Blue Creek)

They're in UTM, NAD 27, 1:24K just like the USGS quads, only smaller and lighter.

Fantastic!  Thank you so much Jeff!  Just took advantage of the color laser up here at the office and printed those bad boys out.

You might consider laminating those pages, or at least test to see how water-resistant the printouts are.  It'd suck to have them get too smudged to read while out on the trail.  Or just slip 'em in a gallon size Ziploc bag and be careful with them.

It's laser, so I don't think it will run.  But I planned on putting them in a ziplock bag just in case.  I have a feeling that the natural water in the air could damage the paper otherwise.  Where can I get laminating done cheap?

You could get some map cases:

Or better yet seal them yourself:

Or I think Kinkos does lamination.  I know Lakeshore Learning allows you to laminate stuff cheap.  It's a kids store and teachers go in there to laminate stuff.  Of course, Lakeshore Learning stores more difficult to find than Kinkos.

Most department and office supply stores will sell press & stick laminating pages or even in rolls.  My wife uses it all the time.  Quality isn't that great, but should be good for a hike or two.
