Happy Birthday John Muir!
The father of National Parks was born 180 years ago today in Dunbar, Scotland.
This was the view Muir and his team looked at as they ascended from cloud camp towards Mount Rainier. Today's camp Muir and the Muir snowfield are where they walked and slept before their historic climb.
I've spent two years researching Muir's life and work. My admiration grows deeper as I consider his vision and missions, as well the actions he took and the leaders he inspired. And he's still inspiring people. "What we do in life, echos in eternity." Rest easy, John of the mountains.

Scenery, greenery, lack of machinery
This is the place for me
Kids used to build forts
Now they watch YouTube shorts
Attention spans affect the natural glands
Obesity isn't a mystery
It's from the tv!
Why can't you see?
They are laughing at you
Making bucks buying big trucks
To pollute the only earth we have
Does it not feel like a direct stab? 🌎💚A poem by me, not intended specifically for Earth day but every day should be Earth day. Go outside and please pick up some trash while you're at it!
Finally was able to relish in the dramatic views of Mt. Rainier. She doesn't come out too often, just peeking through at times. I feel so unbelievably grateful that I caught her on a good day with crazy clouds passing by blue skies.

One of the new features we're adding this year is a yoga component to our Mount Rainier hiking trip. Various yoga poses and practices will be used to supplement the variety of hikes we do around the national park in September. Plus we'll maybe get to see gorgeous waterfalls like this.
Anxiously waiting for the snow to melt to be able to explore some of my favorite places

"I'm a geek for science, so if I see something in nature that intrigues me, I have to find out what it is. I love how the flowers seem to open in a spiral. The fragrance can be sweet as a lily or musty. This beautiful plant is not only frost resistant, but has the resiliency to bounce back after a fire and help with soil erosion. It makes sense if it is also called, 'Fire Lily,' in that regard. The leaves of the Bear grass can be used in floral arrangements and basket weaving, but never collect it in the wild without permits. I believe beauty belongs were you found it. In winter dens, Bear grass has been utilized by bears while hibernating. Do they eat it? I don't want to get too close to check that out. However, elk, sheep, goats and deer do love a tasty flower stalk. I hope you enjoyed reading about Bear grass. Get out there and discover them for yourselves. Thank you and class is dismissed."
