A highly detailed map of the northwestern corner of the state, issued in the same year as statehood. Depicts the rugged topography of the region between the White and Yampa rivers, and extends into Utah where the Yampa meets the Green River. The White River Agency appears to be the only inhabited site named. Several trails are noted, including the "Trail between Uintah and White River Indian Agencies." Ravens, Powells, and Simpsons Parks are noted, as is the Great Yampa Plateau, Axial Basin, and Coyote Basin.
