Cards Designed By Artist Jim Disney On Sale At Rocky Mountain Nature Assoc.
Last year, First Lady Laura Bush chose to celebrate national parks as the theme for the ornaments to be placed on the White House Christmas tree.
Every National Park Service area in the United States was invited to create an ornament. Rocky Mountain National Park contacted Jim Disney, who agreed readily to create the unique ornament. An accomplished artist, Disney is also an accomplished mountaineer who knows the park’s backcountry intimately. Known primarily for his mountain landscapes, Disney chose a snowy nighttime scene of the park’s most prominent mountains, Longs Peak and Mount Meeker, with a foreground of evergreens lit up with colored lights, to grace the ornament.
Jim’s design continues this year on holiday cards now being sold at Rocky Mountain Nature Association bookstores. The cards highlight the beautiful image created for the ornament, a perfect way to send seasons greetings to family and friends.
Superintendent Vaughn Baker and artist Jim Disney along with a representative from Rocky Mountain Nature Association unveiled these unique cards this week at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center in RMNP.
Don’t miss your opportunity to get these beautiful unique greeting cards.
