Yosemite and Sequoia: John Muir's California

2014 Prices From : $4,490 for 8 Days - Tauck World Discovery

Crafted by Tauck and Ken Burns. At his first breathtaking view of Yosemite in 1869, young John Muir had a life-changing moment – a surge of euphoria as he wandered, overwhelmed in the great natural beauty of a landscape unlike anything he had seen before: “We are now in the mountains,” he wrote, “and they are in us... filling every pore and cell of us.” As a self-made naturalist, philosopher, geologist, author, inventor and conservationist, Muir spent his life studying in “The University of the Wilderness,” translating his intense passion for nature into books that inspired a movement to protect “Nature’s temples.” Follow Muir’s path on Tauck's compelling Yosemite tour that traces his trajectory from San Francisco to the Sierra Nevada, embracing Kings Canyon, Sequoia National Park, and his beloved Yosemite, experiencing the powerful beauty of glacier-carved mountains, soaring redwood and sequoia forests, and the story of why they remain for us exactly as he found them.
