john muir

John Muir was a naturalist, author, spiritual man and activist who thought wilderness was sacred & should be protected. He founded one of the most important conservation organizations in the US, the Sierra Club. I saw something on the History Channel about him the other night, and when they mentioned his "1000 mile walk" (yes, he walked a thousand miles, from Indiana to Florida & wrote a book about it titled "A thousand mile walk to the Gulf") - I couldn't help but think, "Wow - how's that for dedication?"... A true life Forrest Gump. Impressive indeed. :o)
