We love Yosemite, and we love these beautiful historical photographs that give us an intriguing glimpse into its past. The images are from The Yosemite Book, published in 1868, which was the result of a government survey lead by J.D. Watkins started five years earlier. It resulted in the most accurate and detailed maps of the Yosemite Valley from the time, and photos that brought to life the splendor of the area. Soon after, President Lincoln signed into law the Yosemite Land Grant giving the Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove to the state of California. In 1890, Yosemite became a National Park and in 1906 President Roosevelt brought it back under government control and expanded the National Park to the entire region we know it as today.

        Beautiful Yosemite Print

        Yosemite is my favorite national park! I purchased this print as a gift for my girlfriend, and we both love it. The photograph is crisp and the paper quality is high. I'm very happy with this purchase, and it makes a great addition to my national parks collection.

        Beautiful quality - the perfect gift!

        I got my boyfriend (a rock climber) this poster for our anniversary and he loves it! Very impressed by the quality and the simplicity of the poster’s design. The size is perfect and the packaging is very thoughtful - he was even excited about the stickers and really appreciated the note about the Sierra donations. Big fans of Muir Way!

        Amazing

        I wish this image was larger. Other than that, the frame finish truly gives the art piece a nice touch. Will definitely get more later.
