John Muir: Making The Scottish Mountains Glad

Jun 30, 2014 by

 

Scottish born John Muir was a visionary wilderness explorer who loved mountains passionately.  In 1849, his family emigrated from Dunbar, Scotland, to Wisconsin and John began his lifelong love of  America’s rugged mountains, wild rivers and green-graced forests and valleys.

In 1892, Muir helped found the foremost conservation group in the world, the Sierra Club,
to “make the mountains glad.”
Though he began his wilderness project to protect American mountains and forests, his words are equally applicable to the Highland beauty of Glen Coe and other wild places in his native land of Scotland.  I have no doubt that Muir, a spiritual naturalist, would have counseled Scots as he did Americans:

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.

John Muir, 1901
