In praise of John Muir

tuolumne-meadows-lao-fb.jpgToday on the weekly KCRW segment they asked me to talk about John Muir. Can do! The first California enviro-geek saw the divine in the Sierra grandeur. The conversation came around to Tuolumne Meadows, the Yosemite river plain where Muir demonstrated the damage done by livestock in the fragile high country of the Sierra Nevada. It's a corner of the state I need to return to frequently. My conversation with KCRW's Steve Chiotakis.
