Naturalist John Muir first published his classic book, Our National Parks, in 1901. Written over a century ago, John Muir states, 'Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people
are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life. ' Those sentiments were accurate a hundred years ago, and more true now.
