John & Ted's Excellent Adventure

In 1903, John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club and President Theodore Roosevelt met up together in Yosemite National Park, which had been established in 1890. The photograph of them was taken at Glacier Point, high above the floor of the Valley, with Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls in the background. After his visit there, President Roosevelt added Mariposa Grove and Yosemite Valley to the Park.

Just last month, a major rock slide permanently closed a major portion of Camp Curry, located in the Valley below Glacier Point.
