Would give 5, but the book is awkwardly large - hard to carry along.
Atlas was delivered in a timely manner and was well packaged. Very pleased with this Amazon interaction.
Conventional highway maps that you buy at gas stations or get from AAA don't have the level of detail necessary for rural destinations, so the Gazetteer is essential for route finding to these kinds of destinations.
The map shows topographical contours at a relatively course level, giving you a rough idea of the terrain. It also shows major trails, such as the Longs Peak trail in Rocky Mountain National Park, but the level of detail is not sufficient for hiking or off-road navigation.
The map also shades public land ownership, which can be useful for making educated guesses about access to trails and rivers -- but you still need to check ahead.
The map is *not* useful for driving in cities such as Denver, nor even in smaller towns such as Grand Lake, Estes Park or Boulder. At this scale, the map can't show street names, which is what you'd need. The Gazetteer would be more complete with 10 or so pages of town and city maps at the end.
One quirk of the Colorado map is that each page covering eastern Colorado covers the same amount of land as four pages in the rest of the state -- that is, it's at twice the scale. These are *really* empty counties, so the decision makes sense, but do be aware of this feature if using the map in that part of the state.
