The Mountains are Calling

Portrait of John Muir, Yosemite National Park

John Muir, born in 1838, was one of America’s most famous and influential “Outdoor Enthusiasts" and one of the Fathers of America's National Parks. He once described himself as, a “poetico-trampo-geologist-botanist and ornithologist-naturalist". His letters and writing contain such gems as the title of this artwork - "The mountains are calling and I must go, and I will work on while I can, studying incessantly" - a true calling.
