William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

Charles Kellogg walked from Sonora via Tuolumne to Yosemite in 1912. Having passed through Hetch Hetchy, upon meeting Muir for the first time he expressed his enthusiasm for the beauty of the valley. Muir responded sadly with deprecating remarks about the vandals that "would drown the valley and blot out all that beauty and the politicians would divide the plunder!" Later Kellogg discussed the dog story he was writing, lamenting his inability to get his dog across the trail and into his tent. Muir's advice was: "Don't be in a hurry, it took me thirty years before I could get Stickeen across that narrow ice bridge." After reading Stickeen, Kellogg concluded that "it was worth thirty years to wait for such a masterpiece."
