Labelled illustration of the Picket Range

For the Pickets junkies like myself....a clipping from my larger labeled poster of the North Cascades.

I used an illustration by Heinrich Berann (1915-1999), father of the modern panorama map. Berann was known for his unorthodox habits of landscape manipulation, such as rotating mountains, widening valleys, and vertically exaggerating features. Berann painted four panoramas for the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) that demonstrated his genius for landscape visualization: North Cascades National Park (1987), Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, and finally Mt. McKinley National Park (1994). His work is now in the public domain and can be found here.
