John Muir Day

Tomorrow (April 21st) is official John Muir Day.  You should celebrate by going on a hike, or at least get outside and go for a nice walk.  Here are some favorite John Muirisms:

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like falling leaves."

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. "

"The mountains are calling and I must go. "
