Title: Map of the peaks?
Post by: 10ftTall&BulletPrf on April 10, 2006, 02:37:40 PM
Is there a map that identifies and labels each of the peaks in BBNP and not just the more popular Emory, etc?

The basic ones are on the maps found at the NPS site:
http://www.nps.gov/bibe/visit/npsmaps.htm
For any not listed on there you'll probably have to pull up a TopoZone (http://www.topozone.com/) map.  Be sure and check the landmarks (http://landmark.granbury.com/brewster.htm) page to see if the peak you're looking for is listed.

here is an interactive google map with all the major peaks that have mountain pages in the park. there are 3 more peaks that will be added in the next month: Carter peak, Chilicotal Mtn, and Basin Rock.

I believe this is Viper's work as well (scroll down a bit for a photo with many of the Chisos peaks marked:

Thanks bdann, this is closest to what I was looking for.

But, for example, most maps(except for the topo) don't show Ward Mountain. And, the topo, with all its lines, gives me a headache if I sit and study it too long.
