Mount Katahdin, ME Topograph

MOUNT KATAHDIN 3D TOPOGRAPHICAL MODEL
For some, reaching Mount Katahdin marks the end of a long journey along the Appalachian Trail. For others, Mount Katahdin is just the beginning of the adventure. Every year many hikers brave The Knife Edge trail to reach the summit. Extreme caution is needed to traverse the ridge, sometimes going as narrow as 4 feet across with 2,000 foot drops on either side. Our topographical model of Mount Katahdin would make a perfect keepsake for those who want to commemorate their journey on the Appalachian Trail or exploration of the mountain.

TRUE TO NATURE
All Alpeaks topographical models are produced with high resolution USGS topo data collected by the space shuttle in the year 2000. This means that each topograph appears exactly the same as the place it's modeled after.
EXTRAORDINARY QUALITY YOU CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT
Alpeaks topographs are 100% made in the USA with American-made materials and tools. We use the highest quality aluminum billet available, which means your model will be around until someone melts it down. Everything from our by-product, to our metal-cutting tools, to our packaging is 100% recyclable to make absolutely sure we leave nothing behind except for aweso
Alpeaks began as a way to bridge the gap between a desire to make awesome metal goods and a love for the American back country. On many of my trips to our national and state parks I've brought home souvenirs like postcards, paintings, and t-shirts, but these items could never quite convey the majesty of the places I had just visited. Finally, after a recent backpacking trip to Washington state, I had the idea to make my own souvenirs that could accurately capture the terrain, scale, and natural beauty of the places we love most.
Doing It Right
I don't think it makes any sense to create products about nature unless they're for nature too. We machine all of our models in a small shop in Jacksonville, FL using sustainably sourced materials including recycled aluminum, stainless steel, and copper alloys. All of our packaging materials are recycled and / or recyclable, and all of our tools and supplies are designed and built in the United States to lessen our impact on the environment and support our domestic economy.
Our plan at this point is to keep designing new models of America's mountains and national parks until we've created something for everyone. There are quite a few notable peaks in the USA, so we've got a lot of work to look forward to. We're excited to help make a difference by contributing to the well-being of our natural spaces.
