Swirling sandbars wend their way across Oregon Inlet, part of Cape Hatteras National Seashore in North Carolina's Outer Banks. The Outer Banks—a 200-mile-long (322-kilometer-long) chain of low, slim barrier islands—arc out from the mainland, protecting the coast and shallow sounds from the battering Atlantic.
This is a print of an original illustration that was then digitally colored. It features over 40 cities in North Carolina with the major ones as well as some out-of-the-way small towns. If you don't see your community on this map, the artist will customize it.
