Cat Lady No. 110...Go Hug A Tree and Thank John Muir

Cat Lady Cora Beth and LuLu are card carrying Tree Huggers and proud of it. That's why today they are celebrating the birthday of John Muir...naturalist, conservationist, founder of the Sierra Club, and Father of our National Parks.

Here is one of their favorite quotes by Mr Muir:

Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer. Camp out among the grasses and gentians of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature's darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is c
losed, but nature's sources never fail.
