Took a late new year trip in #yosemite
and heard about this great mountaineer/naturalist— John Muir (#johnmuir
) made a historical camping trip with president Theodore Roosevelt (#teddyroosevelt
) in 1903, persuading the president to bring #yosemitevalley
to federal protection as part of #yosemitenationalpark
. Without them, we probably wouldn’t have this beautiful Yosemite as we know it today.
