Photographer's Note

"These blessed mountains are so compactly filled with Nature's beauty, no petty personal hope or experience has room to be.
Drinking this champagne water is pure pleasure, so is breathing the living air, and every movement of limbs is pleasure, while the whole body seems to feel beauty when exposed to it as if feels the camp-fire or sunshine, entering not by the eyes alone, but equally through all one's flesh like radiant heat, making a passionate ecstatic pleasure-glow not explainable.
One's body then seems homogeneous throughout, sound as a crystal."
----- JOHN MUIR, "My First Summer in Yosemite"

To hike and stroll along the Tuolumne River as it descends toward Glen Aulin is experiencing Nature as John Muir did. All of your senses are alive and to dream is pure ecstacy.
