This was a self-guided project I took up after visiting Glacier National Park. Most national parks have some form of an informational brochure for visitors which contains a fair amount of useful information and maps. These brochures are also usually very large and cumbersome paper foldouts - not ideal for on the trail or in the car.
As such, I decided to create a new vision for these brochures that would be more user-friendly. A small hand-held device would be immensely easier to use to view park information. 
I made a point to hold as true to the design style that was presented in the paper brochure, so that a user would have a seamless experience, regardless of the method they ultimately would choose to view the content. All copy in my mockups are ultimately pulled from the brochure.

A simple menu was created to help with the basic navigation. Each icon would lead to a specific section of the site/app. 
The opening screen provides space for timely information to be provided (weather, holiday, special events, etc.)
The user flow was designed to be a sequential flow of one large page. I did not want to confuse users with multiple pages - it should be simple for a user to open and then read. 
Arrows appear on each side of the screen to indicate whether the user can continue in that direction.
The flow ends upon a map - which in final production would be interactive with device GPS input.
There are three distinct regions where side-scrolling is used for pictures and information. The first two scrolling sections use a similar arrow indicator. The final scrolling group uses a more picturesque method.
This project was primarily an exercise in fitting an existing product into a modern setting. You can test the mockup yourself at the following link:  
Instructions: Use arrows to navigate (this is to facilitate parallax effects) and the 'S' key to open the menu on the home screen. The menu is not currently functional.
