My parents would often take me to Yosemite Park. Growing up in Phoenix, it was a magical forest wonderland.
My favorite memory is the nature walks with John Muir (as portrayed by Lee Stetson). I have clear memories of walking through the park, hand in hand with Mr. Muir himself. The result, I believe, is that I have a real appreciation for nature and all of it's cathedral spaces. I have become a very avid park supporter and John Muir still is one of my few great heroes.
