Happy Birthday to John Muir and Happy National Park Week to All1
April 21, 2018 by Deborah W. Trotter
It is fitting that this year National Park Week (April 21 – April 29) kicks off on the 180th anniversary of the birth of John Muir in Dunbar, Scotland. Our national park system grew from John Muir’s love of nature, his fierce conviction that wildness is more valuable to us humans if left alone than tamed, and his writing and activism in furtherance of its preservation.
In honor of John Muir and National Park Week, I am posting photos of some of my favorite places on earth. Enjoy!
