This stunning aerial depiction of Yellowstone National Park indeed provides the viewer with a sense of the scope and grandeur of the landscape. Established by President Grant in 1872, the park is a true icon of the American West, and its rich history is engraved in American history. The 3,468 square miles contain a vast array of geographical features and diverse wildlife. The Yellowstone Caldera is the largest super volcano in North America, though considered dormant.
Published with spot heights, this map is a testament to the enduring legacy the parks geography holds in the American landscape. This map was produced by prominent American lithographer Henry Wellge, who was one of five men that generated over half of all perspective maps in the Library of Congress. His work is immediately recognizable and transports the viewer back in time. Yellowstone Lake is one of the largest high elevation lakes in North America. The park is comprised of canyons, lakes, waterfalls, and mountain ranges. The park is also home to the oldest and largest free-roaming Bison herd in the United States.
The park was experiencing tourism like never before in the early 20th century as automobile travel became more frequent, and the arduous journey to and within the park by horse and carriage soon became banned. The park, perhaps more than any other, is representative of the American West and its storied history. One gains a real sense of the era and vastness of the space as it?s projected in this illustration.
