Item Information

Title:
Panoramic view of the Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming-Montana-Idaho
Description:
This shaded-relief map by John Renshawe of the U.S. Geological Survey illustrates the varied topography, or natural features, encompassed by Yellowstone National Park. Mountain ranges, lakes, rivers, and hydrothermal features such as steam vents, fumaroles, paint pots, mud cauldrons, geysers, hot springs and more make up this varied landscape. The Upper Geyser Basin, home to Old Faithful, is located west of Yellowstone Lake. Renshawe has applied color in a painterly style to indicate relief, making this map look more like a work of art than a typical topographic map which uses contour lines and minimal color to indicate relief.
