Member Patricia Greenberg Illustrates Park Guide

When asked how she spent her summer at a recent RMSBA Member Meeting, Patricia Greenburg replied, "Most of the summer 2013 has been spent working on these illustrations for a children's book about Rocky Mountain National Park ... it will be a guide to the history of the park, written by Patricia Pickering and Patricia Washburn (seems like you had to be named "Patricia" to work on this project!). It will include historic photographs as well as my drawings of the local flora & fauna ... it's been so much fun to do.

Each of the animals on the cover will act as guides along the existing roads in the park ... they will highlight sights along the way & point out animals & plants you may see in the area. Right now the copy is being edited & I still have 2 more drawings to finish. We hope to have it published by the spring of 2014, just in time for the 100th anniversary (2015) of RMNP. Hope this is something you were looking for & thanks for the opportunity.
