Thank you for providing such detail into Muir's wanderings up here on Summitpost as a handy reference when inspiration lags!
Thanks for the comments! It sure isn't hard to get inspired after reading a few of Muir's comments, that's for sure. I thought if anyone deserved a place on SP, Mr. Muir does!
Nice am read, thanks for posting.
Glad you liked!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read it, appreciate the comments!
A very enjoyable read. You obviously spent a lot of time on this. Well done!
Thanks for noticing! It took the better part of the last two months to put it together, so I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks for the comment and the vote!
Those of us who enjoy wind places owe a lot to John Muir.
Certainly true, thanks for the comment
Wonderfully written and engaging. Inspirational!
Was Muir a Christian?
That question is a matter of debate. I know that due to his upbringing religion had left a bad taste in Muirs mouth. Though he didn't come right out and say it I believe Muir found his 'God' in the creation around him. It is curious how often he uses God in some of his more vivid descriptions though I believe that, to a degree, this is a result of the late Victorian era in which Muir lived, not necessarily a deep-rooted religious belief.
Thanks for taking the time to write such a great and informative article. And thanks too for using my photo of Glacier Bay, that was a good surprise.
Sorry I didn't write you to let you know but I'm glad you approve! A beautiful shot byt the way, it really captures what Muir must have found so inspiring about the place!
about a great man. I red "The mountains of California" last year and was thrilled by his vivid and brilliant description of the wonders he explored. Your article gave me some further informations - thanks for that work, Michael
Glad you enjoyed! I haven't yet been able to get my hands on a copy of Mountains of California but am hoping to in the near future...no-ones outdoor book collection is complete until they have at least a couple works of Muir on their shelf!

A great idea, I'll do that immediately!
