Crater Lake National Park Posters Released Today!

Crater Lake National Park

If you’ve been to Crater Lake, you know that the color of the water is indescribable, unless of course, you say it’s bluer than blue! What an amazing place, and one of the most beautiful National Parks I’ve been lucky enough to visit! The Crater Lake National Park Posters feature the beautiful blue waters and Wizard Island.

Crater Lake was formed when Mount Mazama — a 12,000 ft. tall volcano exploded and left virtually nothing behind. Eventually, the old caldera filled with snow melt and rainwater, making it some of the purest and most pristine water on the planet.

Earlier this month, I spent several days at Crater Lake…just before the main summer season. Not all of the facilities — including the boat tours and rim drive tours — were open for business. But it also meant it wasn’t crowded! I took some great photos video and will be posting pictures and time lapses, so keep an eye out for that.

But the important news of the day is that I literally just got back from the printer – today – with the new Crater Lake National Park poster!

National Park Service Loses Early Battle over Yosemite National Park’s Trademarked Names

Yosemite National Park

As you may have read, The National Park Service lost an early legal battle over Yosemite National Park’s trademarked names.

Last week, the federal Trademark Trial and Appeal Board put the park service’s request to cancel certain Yosemite-area trademarks on hold.

In a procedural move that might shape the final outcome, the board’s decision led to a U.S. Court of Federal Claims judge rejecting the park service’s request to postpone consideration of a legal challenge by the previous concessionaire, Delaware North Corporation (DNC).

DNC, which managed Yosemite’s major lodging and recreation concessions until March 1st of this year, secured trademark protection for some popular Yosemite-area names.

The National Park Service, however, has renamed these properties and the Ahwahnee will become the Majestic Yosemite Hotel, and Curry Village will become Half Dome Village. The Yosemite Lodge at the Falls will turn into Yosemite Valley Lodge; Wawona Hotel will become Big Trees Lodge; and Badger Pass Ski Area will be called Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area.

And we may not be able to call Yosemite National Park by that name either!!!

I’m not sure how long I will be able to offer the WPA-style poster that bears the name Yosemite National Park. I’ve heard some estimates that say it may take two years to get this resolved. But there’s no telling what the outcome might be.

So, if you’ve been thinking about the Yosemite National Park poster, I’d encourage you to take a second look before they are sold out.

There are fewer than 100 Limited Edition prints remaining…and I am not sure when, or if, I will be able to reprint.
