"The Upper Tuolumne Excursion"

Postby LongLost » Thu Nov 15, 2012 7:21 pm

"We come now to the grandest of all the Yosemite excursions, one that requires at least two or three weeks...Long ago I made these Sierra trips, carrying only a sackful of bread with a little tea and sugar and was thus independent and free...If you stop and fish at every tempting lake and stream you come to, a whole month, or even two months, will not be too long for this grand High Sierra excursion. My own Sierra trip was ten years long."

John Muir, The Yosemite, chapter 12.

John Muir needs a better Sierra peak named after him, but he does have the Muir Wall

I hear the John Muir trail and John Muir Wilderness are both vastly overrated.
:wink:

There are vast amounts of videos and images available if anyone needs convincing about the grand scenery, but did you know there exists a tribute to the man in song?
