A map is a story. The story of a successful summit, of that family vacation, of your home state. It is the story of a landscape filled with memories and adventures.
When we create a Ramble map, our goal is to show the beauty of the landscape as best we can. We want you to see the hills, valleys, rivers, and transitions between ecosystems. Each map shows something unique. Each area has something surprising, even to those who know it well.
This map is a 2-dimensional print that is ready to hang right out of the box on a backing that will float it off the wall, giving it a nice shadow like in our pictures.
The Cascade Range is a volcanic arc running from the north in British Columbia south into Northern California. The range is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire and is composed of 20 major volcanoes, many of which are active and near major population centers such as Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver.
Our map shows the spine of the Cascades, dotted with volcanoes as it runs north to south parallel to the Pacific Coast. While the scale of this map is massive, so is the detail. The Columbia River carves through the range from the high desert of Eastern Washington out past Portland to the ocean. You can see the river valleys of the Olympic Peninsula, the broad, flat Willamette Valley, and the many cinder cones that dot the desert surrounding Bend, Oregon.
Each map is made to order in the USA and will arrive in 1 to 3 weeks.
This option maximizes contrast and detail, resulting in a stunning image that catches the light as you move around it.
The map is printed on metallic photographic paper and then 1/4" of acrylic glass is mounted to the front of it. It is our highest quality option.
The wood mounted map has a rustic, understated, and classy feel to it.
This option looks great in the widest range of lighting setups. It feels the most natural and physical of all of the options. The wood mounted map has a matte finish, so it reflects less light than the other options.
The aluminum map looks sleek, smooth, and modern. It has a high-gloss surface, which gives it deep colors, high contrast, and vibrancy. Under good lighting, this map is truly eye-catching.
This option is light weight and has a lower price than acrylic, at a slightly lower resolution.
