Mt. Whitney’s Actual Elevation – 14,505 feet.

Originally when I created my Mt. Whitney images, I did a Google search for the elevation.  The source I found had it listed at 14,497 or 4418 meters.  Apparently it was incorrect. That might have been the original assessment when it was measured in the 1800s.

Crater Lake National Park


If you love America’s National Parks, then Crater Lake National should be on your must see list.  It’s an awe inspiring place with a fascinating geological history.  One can easily drive the 33-mile (53 km) rim in a day and there are several vantage points to view the lake.  One day I plan to cycle around the rim.  Some of those grades look brutal, so I’d better start training for it now!

Steve Forney’s Yosemite National Park Posters

Two Yosemite posters

Yosemite National Park is one of my favorite places in this world. I’m an avid backpacker, so I’m lucky to live around 3-4 hours from the park. A recent visit inspired me to create these posters. Read more

Sequoia National Park

Sequoia National Park is one of my most favorite places I’ve visited.  I love to backpack and I have been thinking of a series of National Parks posters.  From Alpine peaks with clear blue lakes to flower covered meadows to giant Sequoia trees, this park will never cease to amaze the visitor.  There’s even a tree you can drive your car through.  Pretty cool!

This poster is influenced by the great WPA National Park posters.   This image was created in Adobe Illustrator and used a minimal palette of under 10 colors.  Solid shapes and blocks of color are used, similar to the silk screen process.

Kings Canyon National Park

An elusive bighorn sheep stands guard in the shadows at Kings Canyon National Park.  Kings Canyon and Sequoia actually border each other and may be considered to be one park.  I’m eager to get back there and hopefully I’ll be lucky enough to spot a bighorn sheep.
This poster was created in Adobe Illustrator using a minimal palette similar to the WPA National Parks posters of the 1930s.
