Great overview map

Well done Brendon. Add the Boulders and White Clouds, and this would have it all!

This map makes me wonder

What kind of ranges existed before the Yellowstone volcanics came plowing through here? It looks like ranges north of the plain and south of it may have connected.

Re: This map makes me wonder

I read somewhere that King Mountain of the Lost Rivers and the Deep Creek Range had some geologic something in common, but I don't remember what the source was.
