Naturalist John Muir described the excitement of being in the Sierra Nevada saying, “We are now in the mountains and they are in us kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us.” Muir called the mountains, “The grandest of all special temples of Nature.” The Sierra Nevada calendar reveals the remarkable landscape that continues to inspire us today.
