    I actually normally make the mountains deeper, but I was worried I was overdoing it and making it look cartooney, especially considering the scale of the map.

    Again I am not sure at this scale if I could show much witht he river, will think of it for next time

    Maps are representational - don't feel limited to doing this as a satellite photo

    ...possibly doing a satellite photo with a vector overlay of features, like google earth...

    One thing that helps rivers integrate into the land is tapering the river feature itself. I suggest you varying your line thickness to really ground the rivers into the landscape.
    Something witty and pithy
