Lot Essay

'That first impression of the Valley...the cliffs rising to undreamed-of heights, the poignant sounds and smells of the Sierra...was a culmination of experience so intense as to be almost painful. From that day in 1916, my life has been colored and modulated by the great earth-gesture of the Sierra' — John Muir
