An experience transformed: reopened Mariposa Grove in Yosemite NP makes health of big trees #1 duty

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. — John Muir, the naturalist who was most at home sleeping outdoors on a bed of pine needles in the Sierra Nevada, called giant sequoias the “noblest of God’s trees.”


For three years, some of the most striking examples of these towering marvels were off limits to visitors in Yosemite National Park.
