Topographic maps

Anyone know where to get maps? I'm currently looking for maps of the Black Mountains (Mt. Mitchell State Park). I've got several trips planned for this year and obviously I need several maps... But where do I get them. I'm used to the Army handing me maps saying "go here, do this, come back." Is there a place I can buy topographical maps for leisure trips? Thanks in advance.

Zika virus

There's a new health threat to be aware while you're exploring the outdoors, especially for pregnant women; the Zika Virus. WHO declares global health emergency. You definitely want to minimize your exposure and risk with the usual precautions (proper clothing, mosquito repellent, etc.)

Although the mosquito-borne virus’s symptoms are relatively mild (in healthy adults), it is believed to be linked to a surge in cases of microcephaly, a condition in which a baby is born ...

Western States' prominence


I was curious about how many peaks each of the various western US states contained, based on various prominence thresholds. As shown in the top half, CA and NV come out on top based on gross totals. When adjusted for the size of the state (bottom half), WA comes out on top in every category. Thought it was interesting and worth sharing if you care for such things. Happy climbing!

Topo Maps, European Alps

Anyone have any good advice on where to purchase topo maps for European mountains... only speak English. Just moved to Germany and will be doing a lot of climbing next spring/summer. So far I have run into roadblocks trying to use non-english web pages... working on my German but not at a level where I can quickly navigate Deutsche web pages.

Can you help identify this location?

Dear All,

A friend of my son's has a picture of an old family member from years ago. Unfortunately all the history has long since gone, but the family are left without a clue as to where in the world their forebear made it to.

All suggestions gratefully received...
