GCNP river boundary 25: Final print
The sixteen quads that cover the area along the river from river mile 164 were converted into JPEG files and printed out at about 3/4 size. The difference in size between the various maps was about 1/32-1/16. The cost of printing them was modest. On the wall, they span 13' by 8' high. Incorrect references to Lake Mead NRA were removed. The several manifestations of the erroneous boundary along the river have been cleaned up, leaving only the boundary along the south bank that places the water surface of the Colorado River within Grand Canyon National Park. The land boundary has been corrected in the Parashant-Whitmore and the Grand Wash Cliffs areas. However, the latter has shown up as even more unsatisfactory.
