Nashville Hiking Meetup - the social network of hikers and eco-volunteers


April 19, 2011

John Muir, Yosemite, and the Sierra Club

Last night I watched the American Masters episode on PBS about John Muir, America's modern conservationist, founder of the Sierra Club, and the man we owe a debt of gratitude for helping name Yosemite a national park. This got me even more excited for our Yosemite trip this summer!

If you missed it last night, set your DVRs to record American Masters on WNPT Channel 8 overnight at 2:00 AM, or watch the full episode online here.
