  1. A little bit corny in the script, but beautiful footage. I can’t help thinking of how Muir would feel now, sitting in Yosemite valley with a brown cloud of smog overhead. That’s what I saw last time I was there, and it had been 15 years since my previous visit. Natural areas are still threatened, even in the National Parks.
