I'm pretty much done with this forum, but I subscribed to this thread which popped up in my email. Many copper mines were opened during the Great Depression to provide jobs to feed families. Opening the mines was a saving grace for many.

As far as the post from that person, all I can say is the posting style is familiar to me. Don't waste your time responding...you're just adding fuel to the fire.

Except now coal is an obsolete, innefficient source of energy that is dependant on government subsidies to keep it alive. Try to keep up.

The rafting is preetty weak in the park, so I wouldn't agree such an activity would warrant consideration in a print. Hiking is epic there, especially walking on the glacier just below Root glacier (which is the second tallest icefall in the world if memory serves). The park also has a massive collection of 12000+ foot peaks, with Blackburn being 16000 and the fifth tallest peak in the US.


However, I wouldn't call McCarthy or Kennecott a ghost town. It was pretty cool to walk around there with my dogs, post up in the saloon, have my dogs join the local dog pack in the town, and see people who live there year round living the homestead life. The history of McCarthy serving as the booze and girls town for the miners of Kennecott, and the mining and railroads being associated with people like JP Morgan and Daniel Guggenheim is also of historical significance. I personally enjoyed walking through Kennicott on the way out to hike the glacier, but I didn't take any tours around it. It just seems like a quincisential iconic landmark for the park despite its other more "national park like" features, such as the hiking/mountains.

Anyway, what parks are you all looking forward to in the series? We'll be visiting Grand Canyon, Bryce, and Sand Dunes this summer, so I'm eager to see the print for Bryce. I'll probably choose Grand Canyon and Sand Dunes for my (eventual) wall frame-up. I like the Sand Dunes print both for the interesting color and composition, and just for the unusual look of the landscape at the park itself. :)

Who would be your dream artist/park pairings for this series?
