The John Muir Shelter at 11,955 feet in Kings Canyon National Park

I was fortunate to be able to spend one night on Muir Pass in August 2005. I experienced a glorious sunset and sunrise, alone. To reach this precious place takes a long hike and I tried my best to capture the essence of the moment, the place, and the spirit of those that built the hut and had hiked before, and to fire the spirit of those that will follow my steps. 2006 will be the 75th anniversary of the John Muir Memorial Shelter.
