The Hexmap and Reality

I've been thinking about hex maps and outdoor adventures quite a bit recently, mostly because I've been working on a random terrain generator that, hopefully, will produce not-terrible maps. I decided to try an experiment, so... Take a look at this map and try to guess what it represents. The scale is 20 miles / square (yes I'm lazy and used stagger squares instead of hexes -- sue me). Terrain is:
  • Pale green - plain
  • Drab green - scrub
  • Light green - light woods
  • Dark green - forest
  • Tan - hills
  • Brown - mountains
  • Light blue - wetland/coast
  • Dark blue - ocean

I'll post up the answer a bit later.

  1. Is it the Outdoor Survival Avalon Hill game map?
