[2]for through your eyes and heart I've had my first glimpse of those wondrous mountains. Such kind of mountain climbing appeals to me in every way!So dont forget wherever you wander to write, write, write. So that way at least I can travel with you across seas[1]Dear Mr Muir,Ive had such joy lately wandering with you up-Sierra-hill, and down-Sierra-dale, and in hearing and learning of all the hidden beauties and treasures of your land. I shall always count this as my initiation trip with the Sierra Club,05072
