LindenTree3: " I also worked for Kings Canyon NP in California, Muir was instrumental in the protection of the Kings River Valley. John Muirs home and other info "
Small world, my paddling buddy's daughter and family just moved from there this past year; his son-in-law worked for the NPS at King's Canyon. I kick myself that I never made it out there while they were living there!

We have photos and vids that show us those wonderful sites. I try to imagine how Muir must have felt when he first saw some of those amazing places. He had no real idea what he was about to witness. I can see how he was so taken by that wilderness.
