John Muir lived in the Yosemite Valley from 1868 to 1873. The attention he
won for Yosemite ensured its place as a National Park. Muir wrote, “Nowhere
will you see the majestic operations of nature more clearly revealed beside the
frailest, most gentle and peaceful things.” The Yosemite National Park 2020 calendar shares the
spirit of awe Muir felt so clearly almost 150 years ago.
