The Pacific Crest Trail spans 2,650 miles from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon, and Washington. It is a National Scenic Trail and it reveals the beauty of the desert, unfolds the glaciated expanses of the Sierra Nevada, takes you deep into forests, and provides commanding vistas of volcanic peaks in the Cascade Range. The trail symbolizes everything there is to love—and protect—in the Western United States.

The Pacific Crest Trail passes through five national monuments, five state park units, six national parks, seven BLM field offices, 25 national forest units and 48 federal wilderness areas. Imagine the work involved to coordinate it!

    Each poster is an original work and are numbered, signed and dated. The posters are created in the style of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), when — in the 1930s and 1940s — the Federal Government commissioned hundreds of artists to create thousands of poster designs for public exhibits, community activities, theatrical productions, health, safety and educational programs, nature and travel. By the end of the WPA era, only 26 National Parks had been established and only 14 parks had posters created for them.

    Photographer and graphic artist, Robert B. Decker, studied photography with Ansel Adams in the summer of 1979 in Yosemite National Park when he was just 19…an experience that solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all 61 major national parks as we look forward to the next 100 years of the National Park Service.

    The sole copyright of the original image is retained by the Artist, Robert B. Decker. Any unauthorized reproduction is a violation of international copyright law.

    Artist Proofs are the first 25 posters pulled from each print run. They are numbered 1-25, and are dated and signed. Each Artist Proof features the color bars used by the pressman to make sure that the print stays registered and colors stay consistent throughout the print run. Artist Proofs are 13" x 20".

    Printed on superior-quality, artist-grade canvas, designed for museum display and gallery exhibitions. This 350 gsm, acid-free canvas has a tight, natural weave which maximizes image quality, while also revealing the texture of an artist's canvas. Canvas posters are available in three sizes: 16″ x 24″, 20" x 30" and 24″ x 36″, are shipped free and are ready to hang.

    "I feel that it’s important to protect America’s special places, and to connect people with nature. And it’s up to all of us to pitch in. Perhaps more importantly, we need to inspire the next generation of park stewards. I’m trying to make a difference by giving back to the amazing organizations that support our National Parks. I donate 10% of annual profits, so when you buy one of these original works, you're helping these trusts, conservancies and associations, too."

    By creating these iconic images, I hope to help generate awareness — not only of the grandeur of these amazing places — but also for the need of continued protection and operation of the parks. I think that everyone — now and in the future — should have a chance to enjoy the often-fascinating and always awe-inspiring majesty of our National Parks.
