John Muir



Do you expect to visit Kern River Canon [diacritic] this summer with the Sierra Club? If you do, there are two places which you as Ganger of gorges and Inspector of Gulches, should visit.

The other is the canon [diacritic] of the Little Kern, the wildest canon [diacritic] or ch[illegible] I have seen in the mountains. It is about six miles long and no one has passed through it. Both will be near the Sierra Club's permanent camp, that is, within a few miles of it.
