There’s certainly no shortage of inspiring John Muir quotes. After all, we have the Sierra Club founder and “Father of the National Parks” to thank for many of our country’s earliest wilderness preservation efforts. His passion for nature and adventure, along with a keen ability to inspire people to action, helped foster in the modern era of environmentalism.

And today, beyond being able to enjoy the places he fought to protect like Yosemite National Park, we still turn to John Muir for some of life’s greatest lessons. Here are few gems that are worth reading again and again…

Happy Birthday, John Muir! #johnmuirday #nationalparks #environmentalheroes

How did one man give us so many of life's greatest lessons? Here are some of the most inspiring John Muir quotes that are worth reading again and again...

Idaho’s Main Salmon River is known for big sandy beaches, fun whitewater, and profligate wildlife. People don’t come here for the hiking. But the Main Salmon does have several worthy diversions of foot, and they come in a variety of flavors. Short walks lead to points of historical interest, trails follow lush tributary creeks, and steep footpaths climb canyon slopes. The luxurious river is sometimes hard to leave, but a little #hiking can reveal a different side of the Salmon. Below are some favorites. http://bit.ly/1OwA3Vh
