America’s National Parks Beckon for an Outdoor Holiday This Summer

July 17, 2020

Feeling cooped up during this challenging time of social distancing due to COVID-19? There’s no better place to get away from it all than America’s beautiful national parks. For National Park and Recreation Month, get out and enjoy the many outdoor recreational activities within the National Park System.

You can also enjoy scenes from some of your favorite national parks from the comfort of your own home. Here are a few colorful posters available at the GPO Online Bookstore that are sure to make you feel happier during quarantine.

Rocky Mountain Poster. Created by renowned poster artist Charley Harper, this colorful depiction of Rocky Mountain animal and plant life of the Rocky Mountains is a stunner. An artistically created image shaped by glaciers, crystal clear streams, and a beaver at work, says come visit the Rocky Mountains soon. Rocky Mountain National Park (Map)

Canyon Country Poster. This Charley Harper poster is a testament to why he’s is considered a master poster artist. In this poster, he portrays the Canyon Country National Parks in southern Utah, northern Arizona, eastern Nevada and western Colorado. A richly multi-color illustration of America’s Southwestern parks, striking pinnacles, buttes, spires, mesas, and canyons teeming with wildlife make you feel as if you are standing on the edge of a primeval wonderland.

The GPO Online Bookstore has over fifty elegantly colorful posters, many by Charley Harper, plus portraits of recent Presidents and more, to spruce up any home or classroom. We hope you enjoy National Park and Recreation Month!
