I recently visited Yosemite National Park and learned lots about John Muir and the founding of the park. When I went to Acadia National Park, I learned lots about Rockefeller’s role in establishing that park. I enjoy learning about the people who left such a legacy for the rest of us. But the rangers at Yosemite and Acadia have never met Muir or Rockefeller. They’ve never sat down and had conversations with the founders of their parks, or called them on their birthdays. As my park, Biscayne, celebrates its 50th birthday today, I am reminded how lucky I am to call Lloyd Miller my friend. He is the last living member of the Safe Progress Association that fought development to establish the place I love. Thanks Lloyd. I am beyond honored to know you and call you my friend.

“The sun shines not on us but in us”. - John Muir
Does anyone else really love the woods while being absolutely terrified of what could be hiding in them? As a kid who read a lot about Bigfoot and other cryptids, I’m always slightly convinced that some shadowy monster is stalking me in the trees when I go hiking.
Angel’s Landing, Zion National Park, UT. This is the view just before you start grabbing chains attached to the side of the cliff, to climb the final stretch.
Breathe~ the universe is taking care of everything else 🌟🌟🌿
The Chapel of Transfiguration was perfectly built with its indoor window having a magnificent view of The Tetons ❤️❤️❤️
