National Parks Vintage Postcard Series

This series of postcards was inspired by a 15,000-mile road trip across North America in a silver trailer. My partner, Isaac, and I visited places most people don't dare to go to in the winter, let alone in a camper. We traveled from Colorado north through Montana, Wyoming, Alberta and British Columbia. When we had just about as much cold as we could handle, we drove south through Joshua Tree, Grand Canyon and Petrified Forest National Park where our dog, Rico, got Bark Ranger certified and joined on the hiking trails.

Dog-friendly trails are rare within the National Parks system; this helps preserve wildlife and land inside the parks. According to the National Park Service, the  Bark   Ranger program is intended to be a community outreach strategy and method for positive enforcement of pet policy in the park.

I've always loved collecting vintage ski town and National Parks postcards during my travels. It's the one souvenir that I always buy when I go somewhere since I don't have much space to store things.

We had the most perfect campsite when we visited Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada and that's where I got the idea to design a postcard inspired by the Airstream in front of the mountain peaks. During the roadtrip, Isaac took some really beautiful photos at Grand Teton, Joshua Tree and Glacier National Parks, I wanted to have a way to reflect my own inspiration for these places, and that's when I decided to create an entire series of vintage-style postcards that I could share with everyone else who loves these places.
