Inspiring Generations: 150 Years, 150 Stories in Yosemite
On June 30, 1864, amidst the tumult of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Yosemite Grant Act to protect Yosemite Valley and Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias. Yosemite Conservancy honors this 150th anniversary with this book, created in cooperation with the 150th Yosemite Grant Anniversary Committee and the National Park Service. These reflections from generations of visitors range from the hilarious to the historical, the enlightening to the uplifting. The storeis recall, among other experiences, treks up Half Dome, escapades at The Ahwahnee, revels at the long-gone firefall, and, yes, encounters with those bears. Inspiring Generations will encourage many more journeys to the park filled with family, friends, and the stuff memories are made of.
