The Golden Gate and Gold Rush designs look like a bunch of clip art stuck in a circle (“Let’s put in a bear. Oh, and an eagle! And do we still have room for a rose?”)

The waves design looks like a cheap copy of the much more elegant Rhode Island license plate.

I was liking the Sequoia, but the line “The largest living thing on Earth” seems a little half-assed. Couldn’t they come up with a descriptor other than “thing”? It reads like a Ripley’s comic or something.

My choice would have to me Yosemite. Crisp edges, good sense of dimension.
