Its many waterfalls fluttering like white lace against its vertical granite walls, its smooth level floor, its noble pines and oaks, its open glades, its sheltering groves, its bright clear winding river, its soft voice of many waters, its flowers, its birds, its grass...all enclosed in this tremendous granite frame- what an unforgettable picture it all makes.
—John Burroughs

When I first saw Yosemite, I knew I had discovered my destiny.
—Ansel Adams

The last days of this glacial winter are not yet past... and the world, not yet half made,
becomes more beautiful every day

—John Muir
