I did a job in 1974 for the NPS in Yosemite as a consultant.  Several of the reference books in the Park library were signed by him.  A few years later an actor did a presentation of John Muir in character.

He was Scottish and raised in an very austere family.  Muir was mentally tough and had a brilliant mind.  He was responsible along with a few other like T Roosevelt, John Burroughs, and Gifford Pinchot for starting the Modern Conservation Movement.  I hope someday Hetch Hetchy Res the water supply for San Fran is allowed to go back to it original state.
