The Yellowstone National Park
back to Yellowstone & Grand Teton
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK
by John Muir.
Here is what may well be Muir's most literary piece of nature writing, inspired not by

petrified forest--of the "blessed old Yellowstone Wonderland." It is the source
for his oft-quoted phrase:
"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
