Derby #115: National Parks

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

For some reason we can't put our finger on, we've really been thinking a lot about national parks. Maybe we just need some time in the open air. Maybe the healthcare debate has reminded us that sometimes government can play a positive role in our society. Or maybe public TV is showing a multi-part miniseries on the U.S. National Parks by a prominent documentarian. Whatever the reason, it's time to put that obsession into t-shirt form. Show us a stunning, shirt-worthy image from a national park - and not necessarily one in the United States. Feel free to extend the idea to parks in other countries, on other planets, in other realities, and different eras.

Text is permitted in support of a visual design - no slogan shirts. If you want your shirt to say something like "I Went To Black Hole Galactic Park And All I Got Was Crushed Into Oblivion", back it up with some pics or risk rejection.

But do not use the names of any actual National Parks, landmarks like Old Faithful, or the U.S. National Park Service.

No video-game references.
