Happy Birthday (Almost) to the Sierra Cub!



I heard on the radio this morning that on this date in 1892, the Sierra Club was founded. So, I did a little research and found out that the actual birthday is May 28, (Not too far off.)

If you are interested in conservation and beautiful natural places here in the U.S.A, the Sierra Club offers a rich history in preserving the natural beauty that surrounds us. I am very thankful for the work they have done and continue to do. When I hear mention of the Sierra Club, American heroes like John Muir, Ansel Adams, and Theodore Roosevelt always come to mind. If you are unfamiliar with the Sierra Club, please take some time to get to know their works at www.sierraclub.org/history.

If you want to know of a little connection to Lubbock, please check out page 30 of this Special Places of Texas pdf.

If you want to see some 1928 American beauty through the eyes of Ansel Adams and friends, check out this slide show. I love the image on Page 13.

If you are unfamiliar with John Muir, his legacy, or his beard, start on this page.

May we be blessed with people who work tirelessly to preserve this beautiful planet that preserves us.
