  2. upload that file somewhere. (where?)
  3. Check correctness, then get a screen copy.

I uploaded a picture showing what I need. But, I don't see it now. Maybe I'll never find it again.
Let me know if you found it (Florissant NWG Populated Areas.png).

I found that Google Map will let me put one location on my map with a green pointer. I need several so that not the answer. :-|

You can do a small section from the map screen using the routing there (turn arrow symbol) for larger areas use OSRM does that do what you need? To see the route even clearer you could export a GPX file from osrm and view that with either Viking, Prune or Garmin Basecamp all are free PC programs and display OSM maps.
