I “grew up” in Yosemite. Even at 70 it’s still a place of pilgrimage-not a “park to visit.” The work of John Muir and Ansel Adams make very sure that the spiritual quality remains. The readers have done a splendid job of keeping all this “out where we can live it” out along with the author. Thanks to all who contributed.

Another awesome book by a fantastic author .
