In Muir’s Eyes

Executive summary by darmansjah

DESPITE pleas by John Muir, the Hetch Hetchy, a glacial valley in northwest Yosemite National Park, was clear-cut and flooded to be used as a reservoir in the 1920s. one hundred years later, environmentalists continue to champion Muir’s cause. This annual guided backpacking trip is a chance to chime in-participants must raise at least $1,900-while experiencing parts of Yosemite unseen by most. Restore Hetch Hetchy: “Muir’s March, Yosemite National Park,” 7 days; $1,900 fundraising minimum.
