By the Riverside
Giant redwood trees flank the sides of Redwood Creek, surrounded by green ferns and beds of fallen needles. Note the mossy branch on the right; in the summer, the constant humidity and fog allows the moss to grow everywhere.
One day's exposure to mountains is better than cartloads of books. See how willingly Nature poses herself upon photographers' plates. No earthly chemicals are so sensitive as those of the human soul.
-- John Muir
