Ode to John Muir


The Scottish-born, American-raised, legendary John Muir. I’ve been reading some of his books since last summer and I feel a connection to this man’s perception of nature. If reading is not really your thing, watch the first two episodes of Ken Burns’s 2009 documentary The National Parks: America’s Best Idea to get an understanding of John’s thoughts.

You can also check out a short 5-min tribute video below from Michael Coleman.

Additionally, Lee Stetson may also interest you.  Born in 1940, he has spent the last few decades studying and portraying John Muir in pursuit of protecting that which John cared for.
