It’s here! Celebrating our new book & the National Park Service’s 101st Birthday
“The national park idea has been nurtured by each succeeding generation of Americans. Today, across our land, the National Park System represents America at its best. Each park contributes to a deeper understanding of the history of the United States and our way of life; of the natural processes which have given form to our land, and to the enrichment of the environment in which we live.” – George Hartzog Jr., NPS Director, 1964-1972
When we think about the National Park Service turning 101 today, it almost makes us teary.
We spent a whole year with that guy. Learning how it operates. Appreciating its beauty. And seeing how hard people are working to make sure it is around forever.
It’s been through a lot this year.
But today, we celebrate! Happy Birthday, national parks!
As you know, we’re celebrating big. We wrote a book, and it releases today. It’s only $5.99, and you can snag a copy here!
(If you are one of the first 25 people to order, we’ll also send you a beautiful 5×7 Purple Moose Basics print!)
Our book details how to best visit the five beautiful national parks of Utah. We visited them all in September and October of 2015, and today we’re sharing everything we learned and more. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s inside:

Here’s the fun part about our book. When you buy it, you are supporting the national parks. Today, we will donate 10% of our proceeds from our book sales directly to five national parks organizations: the National Park Foundation, the Zion National Park Forever Project, Bryce Canyon Natural History Association, Capitol Reef Natural History Association, Canyonlands Natural History Association, and Friends of Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Every day after today and for the rest of our lives, we’ll donate 5% of our proceeds to these organizations.
Maybe you’re not interested in Utah’s national parks. That’s okay. We’ll be rolling out several eBooks this year, including one about Alaska’s eight national parks.
So today, as we roll into the weekend, we urge you to celebrate the National Park Service’s 101st birthday in some way. Visit a national park, purchase an annual park pass, or contribute directly to the National Park Foundation.
Every little bit helps.
Happy Friday, friends!
