the same sierra club

once the Sierra Club's founder, John Muir (1838-1914) was camping in Yosemite and wrote...

"I have not been at church a single time since leaving home. Yet this glorious valley might well be called a church, for every lover of the great Creator who comes within the broad overwhelming influences of the place fails not to worship as they never did before. The glory of the Lord is upon all God's works; it is written plainly upon all the fields of every climate, and upon every sky."
