John Muir Tributes

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

John Muir Tributes

Post by maverick » Thu Jan 11, 2018 5:27 pm

Name a place, inside the continental US, that is named after John Muir, without looking it up please. :)
One place name per person, without repeating. Let's see how many we can name.

1. John Muir Wilderness


Professional Sierra Landscape Photographer

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Muir's home in Martinez, CA. I think it's a state park, too.

If I remember correctly, it is a historic site.

Mount Muir. I think it's the one he danced on all night long to stay warm when he was climbing Whitney for the first time.

And,yes, the home is a part of the National Park system. I believe it's a National Historic Site.
