If you’re like me, and assume there’s really no fault to be found in some of nature’s most beautiful offerings – Yosemite, Zion, Red Rocks, et al – then it will probably surprise you that some people use the gloriousness of the internet to leave nasty Yelp reviews for Mother Nature.
Truly. There are people out there who claim Yosemite is “just a bunch of crappy dirt with some rocks sprinkled on it,” and that Yellowstone is “by far the worst place I’ve been so far. …the park itself is nothing grand, there are mountains, trees, and lakes. Nothing too spectacular. The one thing that makes this place different from other parks is the geysers. I was extremely underwhelmed.”
The same review said Yellowstone looks “SO much better in the pictures” and claims you can have a similar experience if you “just boil a pot of water at home.” Also, the cell service is terrible and “the food here sucks.”
Well, the good news is that in every dumb and awful situation, there are people out there willing to give it a silver lining. In this case, it’s designer and illustrator Amber Share, who has taken these 1-star reviews and turned them into stunning posters of the parks.
Here are 10 of my favorites!
10. Grand Teton National Park.

You guys, these are just priceless and honestly, I want to print and frame them. I hope she sells them at some point to mark this point in humanity’s decline.
What do you think? Clever or annoying?
