For those of us who rely on topo maps when looking for boondocking, I just stumbled across another forest service resource -- if you zoom in on a given area, the USGS topo maps appear. Just click on the relevant square to download it. You can choose PDF or geo tiff -- I chose PDF, since I don't know what I would do with the other format! (Yes, I am technologically ignorant. Sorry.)

I am old enough to remember having to buy each hard copy quadrangle -- and they were not cheap -- in order to get decent topo maps. Life in the age of the internet is (in some ways) better than the old days.
