Yellowstone National Park
Occasionally an event happens that has an impact far beyond what is imagined at the time. It turned out that the Hayden Geological Survey of 1871 is an excellent example. Along with Hayden and his technical team were two artists: William H. Jackson, a photographer and Thomas Moran, a painter. Hayden compiled a comprehensive report of the expedition and Jackson and Moran provided visuals that helped congressmen to be inspired by the beauty and wonder of the place. On March 1, 1872, President Ulysses S. Grant signed a bill into law creating the first national park in the world. This is a collection of photos that I have taken in Yellowstone over the years.
