These lovely vintage images are all taken from the book 'Opening Zion' by John and Melissa Clark that I bought while I was in America. The book is described as 'part fashion spread, part adventure guide' so you can see how it would appeal to me. The book is just crammed with these wonderful photos of girls in their hiking gear exploring the Zion National Park as it's first official tourists in 1920. I thought these photos would make for great fall inspiration, the sailor collars, knitted jumpers, laced up boots... I wouldn't mind having them all. Hopefully I will get around to doing a more in depth post about the book in the near future.
