Topography, originally uploaded by and copyrighted by  Calsidyrose.

Isn't this amazing? An old map of a Colorado River canyon, originally from 1895 and published in the J W Powell monograph. Click on the photo to read more about this map. When I first saw it I thought it was a cross section of a strange wooden stem of a liana, they can look similar in close-up.

Thanks for highlighting this piece! The illustration is based on Powell's exploration of the Grand Canyon, somewhere below Page, AZ.
