San Juan Islands National Monument - a Better Map

Salish Sea Communications had an alert regarding planning/management meetings for Washington State's newest National Monument. I had previously posted a map of the monument that showed the outline of the designated monument area. But this map labels many of the small points and rocks as well as larger tracks that are part of the monument. Click the map to enlarge to see all the various BLM land now designated a National Monument. It would an interesting goal to set foot on all the various small bits of the monument.
Note the map says National Conservation Area. The map was apparently created prior to the Presidential Order back when advocates still had hope of Congressional action. The chair of the applicable House Committee, Doc Hastings never scheduled a hearing despite the state support.
