Sorry I haven’t been posting much, but I’ve got to be honest…it’s because of the new Zelda game, Breath of the Wild. 🙈 The game is breathtakingly (😉) beautiful, and it’s got my partner and I excited to plan our next hiking adventure possibly back to Yosemite. With that in mind, I can’t help but share with you a favorite book of mine, My First Summer in the Sierra. John Muir was an environmentalist and hiker both, and he is actually someone I quite admire. This book is full of inspirational quotes from Muir as he discovers the Sierra.
