In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt accompanied Muir on a visit to Yosemite. Upon entering the park, Muir told the president about state mismanagement of the valley and rampant exploitation of the valley’s resources. Even before they entered the park, he was able to convince Roosevelt that the best way to protect the valley was through federal control and management.
Subsequent to witnessing the magnificent splendor of the valley, the president asked Muir to show him the deep and unseen parts of Yosemite. The parts that took work, effort, and time. Muir and Roosevelt set off largely and alone setting up camp in the back country. Under the stars the duo spoke about its wonders at Glacier Point waking to snow’s dusting. Roosevelt spoke how he would never forget that night.
May we never too.
