Abstract:

Summary: In the spring of 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt took a long trip to the far American West and capped his visit with a four-day camping trip through Yosemite with famed naturalist John Muir. Dodging persistent reporters, the men rode through ancient sequoia forests, climbed Glacier Peak and camped at the foot of Bridalveil Fall. As a direct result of this trip Roosevelt used his influence to help establish five new national parks and to create sixteen national monuments.
