“Nature chose for a tool, not the earthquake or lightning to rend and split asunder, not the stormy torrent or eroding rain, but the tender snow-flowers noiselessly falling through unnumbered centuries.

John Muir ~ Scottish-born American naturalist, author, and early advocate of preservation of wilderness (1838 –1914)
