1. What is the approximate elevation of Wonderland Lake? Explain your reasoning. 2. What is the elevation of the peak of Poorman Hill (near the western border of the map, midway between north and south)? Explain your reasoning. 3. Boulder Creek is just south of Peorman Hill. Which is steeper: the banks of the creek or the area close to the peak of Poorman Hill? Explain your reasoning. 4. You decide to walk from the top of Poorman Hill to Boulder Creek directly south. What is the relief of this walk? Sketch your path on the map, and show your calculations below. Be sure to take a picture of your path, and include it in your response. 5. When taking into account the horizontal distance (from the map scale) and the vertical distance (relief), what is the total distance of your walk in question 4? Show your calculations below (Hint: use the Pythagorean Theorem, \( a^{2}+b^{2}=c^{2} \) ). 6. Standing on the peak of Poorman Hill, you decide to walk to the intersection of Canyon Lane and Broadway. Trace the easiest route on the map, and explain your reasoning. Take a picture of your route, and include it in your response.

Answer- To understand and know about the elevation, slope on the map, we need to know about the contour lines. Contour lines connect points of equal e
