I was selected by The Great Big Story and Coors Light as part of their "Made From Mountains" series which focused on artisans inspired by the outdoors. Although Muir Way has no affiliation with them, I am very grateful for the amazing experience they provided and the wonderful video they made.
I've spent my life exploring the outdoors and our country's National Park system. I've always been excited to open the map I'd get at the entrance of a new national park I didn't know so well. Those maps were more than just directions around the national park, they'd help awaken me to the beauty and adventure that was about to come. Like so many, I saved those national park maps as mementos of my trips. Unfortunately, they'd usually end up in a box, or somewhere else where I'd forget about them. Finally, after a trip to Yosemite National Park I decided to design a map that wouldn't get lost. Using soft color palettes and clean design I created versions of National Park maps meant for walls, not just as art, but as reminders of the places we love most. Since opening Muir Way in 2013 we have added hundreds of new map designs of National Parks, mountain ranges, hydrology, historic maps, and more.
We print and frame all of our maps in our shop in San Diego, CA. We try to only use materials made in the USA which include the paper, canvas, and wood used to make our prints. Our packaging materials are either recycled, or at least recyclable. We may not be perfect, but we try our best and are always looking for new ways to reduce our impact on the environment.
We are proud to support the Sierra Club Foundation, Leave No Trace, and the Spokane Riverkeepers. They all do their part to help protect, preserve, and restore our country's wild places and natural resources. We pledge to donate a portion of every sale on muir-way.com to help with their cause.
