Commemorate Your Favorite National Park

 

It’s summer time, although for some, the pandemic has made the summer less than joyful. I hope that everyone reading this post does have a fun summer in some way.

People might not be traveling like they used to this summer. A lot of people are sticking close to home, unless you have a great reason to travel, like the dream vacation you listed in your honeymoon registry, or for business/work.

If you are looking for a great activity to do with your family, one that will help you keep social distancing, why not check out your local National Park?

National Parks are a great way to not only get fresh air, but also to do a love of fun and adventurous things with your family and friends. The good news is that National Parks can be found in every state.

If you are not sure what National Parks are in your state, visit FindYourPark.com. There you can find National Parks in your state, or neighboring states if you are interested in traveling.

My family and I truly love visiting National Parks. There is so much to do from camping to boating, and from hiking to simply sitting back and enjoying nature (my favorite thing to do).

If you are a fan of National Parks, why not commemorate your favorite park (or parks) by adoring your walls with beautiful artwork from artist Rob Decker, sold at National Park Posters.

Mr. Decker is a graphic artist and photographer who studied under the famed Ansel Adams (I love his work) in Yosemite National Park when he was only nineteen.

Mr. Decker has taken his love of National Parks and his amazing artwork to create stunning National Park Posters. Most major National Parks are represented with either a poster or a canvas.

I was sent some posters to review. I was sent to review posters from the following parks;

  • Grand Teton National Park
  • Blue Ridge Parkway
  • Lassen Volcanic National Park
  • Yosemite National Park
  • Zion National Park

The posters are printed on “Conservation” 100% recycled, domestically produced paper with soy based ink. This is not like the typical poster you find at Spencers or Walmart. These are quality posters that are meant to be put in frames and displayed as artwork. Of course you don’t have to frame them, but I would recommend it to protect them, and because I think they would look stunning framed. Currently mine are not framed. I am planning on having them framed once I get back to work and have the funds.

I like that the posters are very colorful. It makes me wish that I could hop on a plane and fly to one of these gorgeous destinations. They are also a great size, measuring at 13″ x 19″.

When you look at the posters up close, you can tell that it’s painted artwork. From a distance they look like photographs. Decker is certainly a very talented artist.

If posters are not your style, National Park Posters also carries canvas prints and postcards. If you are interested in something a bit more special, you can purchase artist prints which are numbered and signed by Decker.

What I love about the National Park Posters website is that they provide you with information about the parks. It’s a great way to learn about parks you might not be familiar with.

The park posters would also make a great gift for a wedding gift, engagement gift, birthday gift or a great gift for a person who loves parks and the great outdoors. You can purchase the posters individually or as a full collection.

If you are interested in learning more about National Park Posters, visit National-Park-Posters.com. They site, and Robert Decker, can also be found on social media. Those links are found on the bottom left of the website.

Do you have a favorite National Park? What is your favorite thing to do while visiting a National Park? Feel free to comment and share your thoughts. I always love to hear from readers.
