Glacier National Park
Original, hand-drawn story map and accompanying gifts of Glacier National Park by renowned Illustrator and Xplorer Maps Co-Founder, Chris Robitaille.
The Glacier National Park map is a tribute to America’s centennial celebration of our nation’s 10th National Park.
On May 11th, 1910, President Taft signed legislation designating Glacier our nation’s 10th National Park. Known to Native Americans as “Shining Mountains” or “Backbone of the World”, Glacier encompasses 1.1 million acres of spectacular scenery, 750 miles of hiking trails, nearly 70 species of mammals, 270 species of birds and the renowned glacier carved landscapes that date back millions years.
Released in August, 2010, our second illustration is a tribute to America’s centennial celebration of our nation's 10th National Park. Similarly hand drawn in the artist's unique and masterful old world style, yet quite different with its vibrant images of Glacier's incredible flora and landscapes, the Glacier National Park map highlights the region's colorful history, unique geology and magnificent fauna.
