‘In The Footsteps of a Saint’
Join author John Colver online and at Mount Rainier National Park for the launch of this book and celebration of the life of the ‘Patron Saint of Nature’ and Father of our National Parks, John Muir.
IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF A SAINT
Join ‘In The Footsteps of a Saint’ author John Colver at Paradise Lodge, Mount Rainier - and online - for a celebration of this new book about the impact John Muir had on the wild places that we cherish and enjoy today.
John Muir first visited Mount Rainier in August 1888. The impact had on him cannot be understated. At 50 years old, the 1888 ascent of Mount Rainier was difficult, dangerous and pivotal. He used the experience to write and speak voraciously in the name of protecting our majestic wildernesses for future generations.
One year later, Congress established Yosemite National Park. Eleven years later Mount Rainier became the fifth National Park in the United States. This years events will take place under the gaze of the route Muir followed.
Three years, 3000 miles, 22 wilderness areas, 15 summits, 4 mountain ranges, 6 pairs of boots and over a year sleeping in the forests and wilderness which Muir roamed… have created a story about what our public lands might mean to us, and how we can carry the beacon lit by Muir and his pioneer friends.
Join us in August, at Mount Rainier - and online - for a celebration of the impact our majestic wild places had on John Muir, on us and for generations to come who will follow in these footsteps too.
