"When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe."

MY FIRST SUMMER IN THE SIERRA, pg.157
"How hard to realize that every camp of men or beast has this glorious starry firmament for a roof! In such places standing alone on the mountaintop it is easy to realize that whatever special nests we make leaves and moss like marmots and birds, or tents or piled stone we all dwell in a house of one room the world with the firmament for its roof and are sailing the celestial spaces without leaving any track."

WILDERNESS WORLD OF JOHN MUIR, pg. 312


"The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness."

UTAH

"As Oakland is preeminently a city of roses, so is this Mormon Saints' Rest a city of lilacs and tulips. ...The gardens are laid out with great simplicity...In almost every one you find daisies, mint and lilac bushes, and rows of plain English tulips. Lilacs and tulips are the most characteristic flowers, and nowhere have I seen them in greater perfection."

STEEP TRAILS, pg.76
"The other liliaceous plants I have met in Utah are two species of zigadenas, Fritillaria atropurpurea, Calochortus Nuttallii, and three or four handsome alliums. One of these lilies, the

calochortus, several species of which are well known in California as the "Mariposa Tulips," has received great consideration at the hands of the Mormons, for to it hundreds of them owe their lives. During the famine years between 1853 and 1858, great destitution prevailed, especially in the southern settlements, on account of drought and grasshoppers, and throughout one hungry winter in particular, thousands of the people subsisted chiefly on the bulbs of these tulips, called "sego" by the Indians, who taught them its use."
