I'll hang it on my living-room wall for now. Can't wait for the trip. Great map!
This is a good map. Covers a large area and contains many hiking paths. I was looking for routes to mountain peaks and I am guessing most of these paths are not published on maps. Since the map covers so much area I preferred my GPS for more detailed scale.
