Maps of Cloud Peak
and Rock Creek Wilderness Study Area
There are currently (May 24, 2013) over
30 maps made specially for this website. Most emphasize
the physical relief properties of the area. Those include
land management, forested areas, annual precipitation,
snow depth, seasonally closed roads (2011), cell
coverage, topo quadrangles, etc.
There are also links to each USGS topo of the area and to
the Trails Illustrated, National Forest, and Google GIS
interactive map sites.
For accuracy, the maps here are created from the US
National Map and other sources in the public domain.
Labeling details have been added by the mapmaker. Go to Maps Pages.

species profiles of hundreds of mammals, birds, and fish.

If you've ever wondered how closely wolverines might be
related to bears, pronghorns related to bighorn sheep,
sage grouse to domestic chickens, and so on, the details
are linked here.
Special topics include discussions of the some
controversial wildlife issues of the Rocky Mountains --
