John Muir - The Godfather of Conservation

Over the weekend artist Paul Puckett posted a sketch of John Muir on his social media and it was perfect timing, not only since Earth Day is today but also since my family and I were wrapping up a spring break road trip that took us from San Fransisco, California on an over 2,000 mile trip that ended in Las Vegas, Nevada where we visited five National Parks, a National Monument and passed through multiple National Forests along the way.

The references to John Muir were especially evident at Yosemite National Park but his fingerprints could be seen elsewhere on the trip as well.  I spent a lot of time driving through the week from mountains to forests to deserts to canyons and over these huge expanses of public land, I was really left at awe and so thankful for this gift to share with my children, who were equally at awe. 

Hopefully this will continue from generation to generation and we'll place the appropriate value on conservation as well.  It's important.  Today and for all the tomorrows.    
If you enjoy Paul Puckett's work, be sure to check out the Sporting Art of Paul Puckett website and follow along on Facebook and Instagram too. 

Need some #goodcleanlivin in your life, look around the Flood Tide Co. website as well.
