Bird's Eye Map of Colorado Showing Tourists' Resorts.
by Burlington RR.
13 x 11. This charming map of the mountains of Colorado is from a century old tourist promotion Colorado via the Burlington Route (included here). It shows none of the plains - Trinidad and Pueblo are at the very east edge - and north as far as North Park. The title block occupies the far north west corner, but Grand Junction and Meeker do appear. Many towns are named, several geographic features (Royal Gorge, Cliff Ruins, Black Canyon, Spanish Peaks, and so on), as well as a couple of hot springs. Mountains are drawn in bird's eye view style, I doubt with much accuracy but a couple of major peaks are named. The top quarter of the sheet has a map of the western united States with the Burlington Route from Chicago west shown. Folded, else very good.
