Silk Yosemite Map 1897
Is there anything more beautiful than an old map? At the lodge, next to the front hall, we have a map room. Hung on the wall are early hand drawn maps of Wolfpine Lake, marking timber warrants, old trap lines, trails and portages long overgrown. And sitting in the middle of the room is a large oak map case, with dozens of wide flat drawers holding a century’s worth of topographical maps. Taggart has been known to spend hours in there leaning over a map, one hand holding a Burnt Point Sour, the other tracing the elegantly drawn details sketched in by master cartographers and surveyors.
Taggart selected some of his favorite maps and we reprinted them on archival quality 46 lbs paper to share with you. These look gorgeous on your home or office wall, or they can be used as they were intended: folded up in a pack, guiding the way through your most loved national park.
Why silk? Silk topo maps are a tough and versatile replacement for paper maps or GPS. They are waterproof, don't require batteries, and have a hundred additional uses from bandana to tourniquet. You can find out more in our FAQ page.
