Old Yosemite topo maps

While scalp(er) hunting, I noticed this: http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/clt/3072459357.html

It would be great if someone here could snag the originals of the Yosemite maps and scan them for the greater good of all here.

Check this out, from Chick-On: Chick-On's Old Topo Maps

Eeek has a link to it, below.

There's so much online nowadays... it's a crap shoot without pictures of what you are getting...

Some old threads with great stuff on Old Maps (and I love old maps and old trails)

There's probably more that I'm missing.

I was hoping someone here might be in the Fairfield area and could go take a look-see.

I'll send you a link to a set of maps I enjoy.
For some you can just snag the .sid file and convert it to jpg.
For Princeton... well... you have to screen capture... I did
email them once ... I think they wanted something like 30 bucks per
for each file... and I didn't pursue it any further.
USGS has a bunch of maps that used to not be avail.

Princeton (and basil gets all the credit for finding these!) are the best.

I've also created a bunch of .kmz files for use in a GPS for my own
personal use. I can send you the link to that.

One other note.. you can buy the 1970 USGS map in the village store
for 12 bucks. The link is below of that map. Excellent map.

I was told many times that I should go to Menlo Park and visit USGS.
Again, there is so much online I just never pursued it.

Two other links and I'll quit yapping:

http://yosemitenews.info/forum/read.php?3,53177,53225#msg-53225

There's this contained in there:
http://www.gelib.com/historic-topographic-maps.htm

I was thoroughly unimpressed with the gelib.com thing.
I probably need to give it another go.
