This map is part of a series depicting the 40 largest cities in the United States (as ranked by CBSA). This series will run through the month of July.

Really cool and hyper-detailed illustration of the Front Range to the west of Denver, Colorado [gmap].

Not a Denver map, proper (but there are plenty of those on this site, if you're curious), but one of the absolute coolest maps I came across while researching this bit. Gave me an hour of study, easy.

I'm a Midwestern guy, and not much of a mountain expert. I'm sure locals could clue me in to any number of cool finds on this map. If you'd like to do so, I'd love to hear anything you'd like to share. Feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an email.
