John Muir sits upon a boulder in Nature’s cathedral, his eyes alighting upon the wonders that have been the source of his daily inspiration. His mind races to find a way to put into mere words a way to describe what can only be experienced.  Like the prophet Moses leading his people into the wilderness, so too has he come to free us from our troubles and tell us all….
 
"Keep close to Nature's heart...and break clear away,
once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week
in the woods.  Wash your spirit clean."
~ John Muir
