What a great series. I love National Parks. Can't wait to take my daughter to lots of them when she's old enough.

I've been to about 12-14 of the parks. Would love to see them all.

I was really hoping they'd use the Subway for Zion, but I'll still buy the hell out of that thing. Dying to see who's on Denali and what it'll look like.

I've done a lot of climbing in the Tetons. Climbed Mt. Moran on a technical route a few years back. After reaching the summit, we rappelled down to the top of Skillet Glacier and glissaded the entire glacier from top to bottom. The average incline was at least 65 degrees, so I felt like I was falling as much as sliding. An amazing day, seared into my memory forever.

Many people are surprised to learn there is a hiker's route to the top of Middle Teton. If you are a confident hiker and don't mind a little altitude, the view from the top of Middle is nearly as good as from the top of the Grand.

It's an exciting route with few hazards. Just remember, weather can become violent very quickly above treeline in the Teton Range.

I mentioned the Great Smoky Mountains before, since my family has spent a lot of time there, but I totally forgot about spending a week in Glacier back when I was still in high school... definitely curious to see the artists for both of those :pint:

I'd like to know if danger and McCarthy will be doing multiple prints. I think their styles are perfect for these images. Hoping to see more from them in the series. Old boy JC Rivhard would be no slouch either.

This.

I think I read that they didn't want each poster to look like the same artist was hired for the whole series but I do hope to see more than just one poster from those guys. :pint:

The most exciting aspect of these posters is having 59 different artists contribute to the series!
