“Yosemite Park is a place of rest, a refuge from the roar and dust and weary, nervous, wasting work of the lowlands, in which one gains the advantages of both solitude and society. Nowhere will you find more company of a soothing peace-be-still kind…This one noble park is big enough and rich enough for a whole life of study and aesthetic enjoyment.” ~John Muir, John of the Mountains: The Unpublished Journals of John Muir
