Let's See Your US National Parks Signs Photos


Feb 12, 2014
Let's see everyone's photos by the US National Parks signs. Rules are you have to be in the photo and I want to see what y'all have...family, unique, funny, or old. I was thinking of this this past week when I took another photo by a Canyonlands backcountry sign and wondered what the others look like.
Below are mine at all five of the Utah National Parks and a couple backcountry signs.
I'm expecting some pretty amazing photos from @Artemus @Bob and @Perry...mostly because you're old (haha) and you should have some great shots from when Zion NP became a NP in 1919. (see what I did there)
Yes, I'm bored during this coronavirus fun.

Ooh, fun game - I love catching the signs! I think I have a pretty good collection considering I'm not from the US :) I'm gonna break the rules though because I'm kinda camera shy and don't really like posting my face all over the internet, sorry!

Here's mine though. I'll mostly stick with NPS main entrance signage and have left out some duplicates.

You can't drive to Gates of the Arctic NP and in 1983 there wasn't a visitor center.So a Bettles sign was all that there was !
The visitor center for ANWR photo is from 2013. Bending the rules a bit if that's okay.PICT0080 (2).JPG141.JPG
Bummer. I can't play because I've not taken pictures of the signs.
OK--this isn't the sign for the national park, obviously, but if you understand French and the modern vernacular, you'll still enjoy this shot of my family and French exchange student outside Grant Tetons...
