"John Muir is dead. Up through the far-flung reaches of the Yosemite, the Sequoia, the Muir Woods and all the mountain wilds of the West will ring the mournful echo of that message, for the birds, and the beast and all living things have lost a friend."--Los Angeles Times, December 25, 1914

On December 24, 1914, Christmas Eve, John Muir passed away in a hospital in Los Angeles of pneumonia.

Luckily, his work and the mountains he loved still survive...
