topographical maps?

Theres probably a better way but this is what i did. I ordered a 'master' map that showed every quad (1;7500 scale) and name of quad in CO from USGS. From that master i was able to pick what quads i needed and ordered the basic paper maps.at the time it was 6or7 dollars per quad.I did this pre PC so i would think it would be fairly easy to get on the USGS web site and go from there.

I really like the delorme topo zone map program. I have been using it for years and is a good tool. yuu can create all kinds of maps. For the $100 i have the whole western united states. Than get the national geographic adventure paper so your maps don't run when rain hits them.

I also have the delorme topo usa and their hand held gps, they both work great. You can download aerials topos etc. onto both. Another option is mytopo.com, you can do a specific area that might run onto 4 or 5 usgs quads and put them onto one map,they can waterproof it and do different layering , they worked out for me in previous years also.
