** A ‘topo’ map shows the shape of the Earth’s surface with contour lines. These lines make it possible to measure the height of mountains and steepness of slopes – great information for anyone planning a hike or a fishing outing.
Co-Sponsored by the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum to compliment the “Catskill Rivers and Trails” exhibit at Morgan Outdoors through Oct. 9th.
