Mayme's favorite quote:
"Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountain days, inciting at once to work
and rest! Days in whose light everything seems equally divine, opening a
thousand windows to show us God. Nevermore, however weary, should one faint
by the way who gains the blessings of one mountain day; whatever his
fate, long life, short life, stormy or calm, is rich forever." - John Muir
