"...I decided to visit California for a year or two to see its wonderful flora and the famous Yosemite Valley. All the world was before me and every day was a holiday, so it did not seem important to which one of the world's wildernesses I first should wander."
--John Muir (1868)
How fitting that we cross over into "the West" at this iconic gateway
city that was the launching point for the great western expansion of our
country! Also perfectly American that we whizzed right by it in our
truck and moved on down the road.
