Welcome to Arches National Park. This is a high-quality art print of a handmade map that was drawn with a fountain pen and ink.
My mom says she thinks Arches is a cathedral to nature, and I think she’s right. In no other place have I felt that the landscape has so much of a spiritual connection to those passing through; it feels like home and looks like the face of an alien planet. This was the first national park map I drew, and that’s because Arches is my favorite national park.
If you haven’t been to Arches before, leave this page right now and figure out a way to get there, because you absolutely, 100%, must go there! But if you have been there before and happen to want a map of it, or even if you haven’t been there and would like to have a nice ink map in hand on your first visit, I’d be happy to oblige!
• The map was drawn using a LAMY fountain pen and ink with a high degree of detail, accurately captured in the art print.
• It is printed on thick, durable matte paper. The paper is archival, acid-free paper that is 10.3 mil thick. The paper has a matte finish (not glossy). Printed in the USA.
• While directly based on the maps provided at NPS visitor centers, I would not recommend relying on this map as a sole means of navigation within the parks! Many details are hard to fit in (such as side roads and hiking trails) and liberties have been taken with portraying certain regions and landmarks.
