Canyonlands National Park Proposal Brochure, 1962

Browsing the Canyonlands National Park website a couple of weeks ago, I found a brochure  printed by the Park Service in 1962 detailing the reasons that Canyonlands should become a national park.

It really makes me wish I had been able to explore canyon country “back in the day” before it became a major tourist attraction. (Um, I mean, how cool would it have been if Ed Abbey was your park ranger at Arches National Monument and you gave him a beer and talked over your campfire?)
