John Muir – Grand Show Is Eternal
His letters, essays, and books telling of his adventures in nature, especially in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, have been read by millions.
The Sierra Club, which he founded, is now one of the most important conservation organizations in the United States.
One of the most well-known hiking trails in the U.S., the 211-mile (340 km) John Muir Trail, was named in his honor.
Other places named in his honor are Muir Woods National Monument, Muir Beach, John Muir College, Mount Muir, Camp Muir and Muir Glacier.
This grand show is eternal.
It is always sunrise somewhere:
The dew is never all dried at once.
A shower is forever falling, vapor is ever rising.
Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset,
eternal dawn and gloaming
on sea and continents and islands,
each in its turn,
as the round earth rolls.
