When he started drawing the map, Myrmel said his goals were fairly simple. “I initially decided the trail, campsites & related information for hikers was primarily what I wanted to put on it,” he said.   “I thought the rivers & water sources were important, & roads, parking & access points were needed for planning purposes.”


For those landmarks, Myrmel used mainly calligraphy pens, colored pencils & markers, but had to experiment to find the best medium to color the land & the water areas.   “I tried markers, oil paints, acrylic & water color paints,” he said.   “The only one that worked well was water colors, but that wrinkled the paper.   I spent a lot of time spraying water on the backside of the map & using weights & newsprint to try & flatten the vellum paper.   And I reworked the colors three or four times to get the effect I wanted.”
