This is a National Development Bureau road map of western Canada and the western United States. Depicting the region from Notikewen, Alberta to Pueblo, Colorado, and from the Pacific Ocean to Cheyenne, Wyoming, the map highlights road connections between the two countries. Red lines representing major highways meander their way across the continent. Green splotches marking national parks stand out against the multicolored American states and Canadian provinces.
