Truly immortal ...

If you're a fan of Glacier Park you've almost certainly read this famous quote by now, but it's a classic that bears repeating. This was written by John Muir, for the 1901 volume, Our National Parks:
Give a month at least to this precious reserve. The time will not be taken from the sum of your life. Instead of shortening, it will indefinitely lengthen it and make you truly immortal. Nevermore will time seem short or long, and cares will never again fall heavily on you, but gently and kindly as gifts from heaven.
