Morning in the Yosemite high country near Dana Meadows. Our national park system turns 96 today--and it's still America's best idea.


"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." -John Muir, our wild places' greatest advocate
