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.
At 8,366 feet, Mount St. Helens is the smallest of the Cascade Volcanoes in our collection, but it is one of the most dramatic. The active stratovolcano erupted as recently as 2008, but the infamous 1980 eruption was the last major eruption and cleaved off over 1,300 feet in elevation, leaving the formerly cone shaped Mount St. Helens with a gigantic horseshoe shaped crater.
Since the explosive 1980 eruption, a new glacier has formed in the crater. Recent volcanic activity has caused a new dome to rise within the crater, splitting the glacier into two lobes which can easily be seen on the map.
Normally, geological processes unfold over millennia, but for Mount St. Helens, the story is unfolding over human lifetimes. This map is a portrait of a mountain in flux!
Each map is made to order in the USA and will arrive in 1 to 2 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.
