Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Ranger Doug National Park Posters

Wall art for the outdoor lover

by: Will Rochfort

Yellowstone Park Poster
Yellowstone Park Poster

With just over 3.6 million visitors in 2010, it’s hard to believe there was a time that Yellowstone needed a marketing campaign. But these posters represent just that; they are brilliant replications of the originals that were plastered on small town windows in the late thirties, encouraging town folk to hop on the rail and travel west. It wasn’t just Yellowstone either.

This poster collection includes other bastions of the west like Zion, Glacier, and the Grand Canyon, which were heretofore places unseen by most of the modern world. Times have changed, of course, and many Americans have at least seen a picture of the Grand Canyon and the other parks. But pictures don’t compare to the breathtaking glimpse of the real thing and these posters, while certainly pretty, do so much more: They encourage and inspire you to go see these natural wonders for yourself. If you have nieces, nephews, or you just know a national park newbie, consider buying one of these posters for them…and get them thinking about a trip in 2012. Being a part of someone’s first visit to iconic Americana is a guaranteed life changer.
