Our family has visited this NP several times and the last 2 visit we had searched for a patch to add to our day packs. Not finding thing in person I looked up this site and was delighted to find 2 awesome patches. We chose this design because it really resonated with our visits hiking and of course the black bears! I hand stitched the patches due to the iron on glue does not keep the patches on the synthetic material my pack is made of.

I have this patch and also the sticker version. Both are great quality and I love the design. I think the designs of the Trailblazer series are much better than the ones they sell at the parks gift shops.
