"Read "My First Summer in the Sierra" by John Muir" Information / Sources Tip by VeronicaG
Information / Sources, Yosemite National Park: 15 reviews and 18 photos
Favorite thing: Preservationist, John Muir, fell in love with Yosemite in the late 1800's.
Read his journal account of a summer spent here in the shadow of El Capitan and Half Dome--it will beautifully prepare you for what you'll encounter at Yosemite National Park!
Muir eventually founded The Sierra Club and was instrumental in creating the Petrified Forest, the Sequoia national parks, the Grand Canyon and Mount Rainier.
As a tribute to his efforts, Muir Woods National Monument was established. It is located a short distance from San Francisco.
I highly recommend this book! The ISBN # 978-0-7607-8452-5; publisher Barnes and Noble books.
