pendeton map wallcovering

Help...Looking for something similar to the galley wall map on the pendlton to cover the refer bulkhead in our Excella. Trying to tone down all the wood in the interior, well the bulkheads really arent real wood finish anyway and I really like the map look.
If i were able to be picky it would be somewere like Yosemite or Eastern Sierra but Montana is good too.
any ideas?

Not finding what I want so that may be next.

Lots of map prints but all I have seen show too large an area, like the whole state.
Not as easy as I thought it would be, never is though.

The most colorful and 'artful' maps are those printed by the US Geological Survey in their older Annual Reports, Professional Papers and Bulletins. These maps are folded in map pockets, engraved plates, geology is in color with elevation contours! Keep into the 1890's to 1940's as these are the most desired and can be found on book sites such as www.abebooks.com.

You do not specify a range in map dimensions and that might be a good update to your post.

My indexes to all of these are 810 miles east of Nevada, at present. When you search: Yosemite Geological Survey for example.

More specific Huber, Geologic History of Yosemite Valley, which is Professional Paper 160. There are three folded maps in the pocket. Printed in 1930.

I have 850 cartons of this kind of stuff being unpacked. You will also find the text on Yosemite with photographs, diagrams of all important rock structures and the maps are just a bonus. This can be done with ANY state in the Union for specific sites of interest.

I hope this helps. You are more interested that the MAPS are 'crisp and clean' without fold tears. There are also smaller foldout Yosemite National Park maps within the text....! Absolutely stunning. If I did not have 10,000 favorite geology books with maps... I would frame them all for our home in Nevada. I never travel without a carton of these to find those places... long forgotten on the current Highway Maps. Have been dealing in these for decades and Yosemite is a favorite for years.

Good Luck and those following this post... try it yourself. The United States and Canadian Geological Surveys provide maps of such high quality that any would be a great addition to your home and... trailer. Change the maps as you travel by slipping them between some clean flexible plastic.

By mid year I will have my hundreds of linear feet of shelving built and my Off the Grid camping will be able to use these 'forgotten treasures'.

Thanks Ray, and others who posted.
I like the scale on the pendelton map but it could be a lower scale too. More of a snapshot of an area we like to camp, for us it would be Hwy 395 up the Owens valley starting at Lone Pine and Mt Whitney and north up to Lee Vining (I guess thats more than a snapshot) Or the Yosemite Valley.
I need to do more research I guess.

This is all fairly simple. I make maps like these regularly. Just find an image that you like, preferably in jpeg format, send it to any engineering or environmental consulting firm near you. They can print it up on their plotter.

Alternatively, and probably preferably, take your image to one of those graphic design places that make custom "wraps" for cars and trucks. They can probably make one on film that will stick easier without need for some sort of finish on the image.

Easy-peasy

Your local Staples store can print large scale (up to 3 or 4 feet wide) in color or black and white. I'd print it on paper and then just modgepodge it on there and then seal it somehow...

As long as the image is pretty high resolution, it can be enlarged to any size you want. Quality goes down as it gets bigger, so it has to be high resolution.
