A few years ago I was poking around looking for books on southern California online and ran across a book by John Muir.
I enjoyed reading a few pages while visiting then. Before coming for this visit I noticed it was still on my Kindle and began reading in it again.
The prose is gentle and talks about the geological history of this area. I found it pretty interesting.
I began wondering about Muir. I found out that he was one of the founders of the Sierra Club.
I like reading local history while visiting a place, so this is very cool. I found another book by him that looks to be a bit more breezy in its prose:
Muir died in 1914 right after WWI had begun. He was born in Scotland and moved to the US in 1849 with his family. He seems like a fascinating character to me and I quite like reading him. Who knew he was so famous?
The mountains even here in Corona are a beautiful back drop wherever one goes. Very cool.
Soccer originally a British term probably derived from the word, association, in “Association Football.” Who knew?
You say ISIS, I say ISIL, let’s call the whole thing off.
As the headline reads: “Meet the Sarah Palin enthusiast who may have been the best American historian of his generations.” Wow.
