Make a topographic map!

A topographic map, or "topo map," is a way to show mountains and valleys on a flat piece of paper.

Topo maps are handy and necessary for many uses, including building roads and hiking trails in the mountains.

The map shows where the hills and valleys are and how steep they are.
