BHP Map Improvement Project

Welcome to our new interactive BHP Map! This is a work in progress. We have over 30 links on the map so far. Each link has its own dedicated web page. Each page has information, photos, videos, links & more!

Some pages are still blank and need your help! Please send your suggestions for content such as text, photos and references to:

Here are some alternate maps that can be used for verification and to find additional info, photos, links, etc.

Project Status & Notes

The table below lists the status of each of the map links. They are ordered approximately from north to south.

The 'Alt text' appears when you hoover over the link. Used for accessibility and Google search indexing.
