For November's challenge we'll depart from the Fantaseum Alliance challenges, instead returning to and expanding upon a past favorite: symbol development!

This time around your challenge is to create symbols one would expect to find on a Western themed map. Think cowboys and indians, tumbleweed, and stagecoaches! The symbols should be simple yet stylized according to the theme. You don't have to make many, but you must at least include the following:

Towns
Oasis
Cactus/Brushland
Hills
Mountains/Mesas
Desert
Some form of hazard or warning
Rail lines


GUIDELINES

Create symbols that can be used by any graphics or mapping application (png preferred)
Adhere to the Western theme
Ensure the list of required symbols is met
Bonus consideration for making additional, unlisted symbols
Bonus consideration for making a matching compass rose
Bonus consideration for making a map utilizing the symbols


Remember to adhere to the contest rules...create a thread for your entry (WIPs welcome), and if you have any questions please put them in this thread.

As a final note, this challenge is designed to be a simple exploration of map symbols; you should be able to be complete it in a small amount of time. Good luck!
