maps - quote

In 1872, a surveyor named Almon Thompson explored the high desert plateaus of south-central Utah, mapping a tributary of the Colorado called Potato Creek, which he renamed the Escalante River, and a thirty-mile mountain range now called the Henry Mountains. Thompson didn't know it, but his discoveries would be the last river and the last mountain range ever added to the map of the contiguous United States.
