Muir quote from his trip to Rainier

“The view we enjoyed from the summit could hardly be surpassed in sublimity and grandeur; but one feels so high from home so high in the sky, so much so that one is inclined to guess that, apart from the acquisition of knowledge and the exhilaration of climbing, more pleasure is to be found at the foot of mountains than on their frozen tops. Doubly happy, however, is the man whom lofty mountain-tops are within reach, for the lights that shine their illuminate all that lies below.” – John Muir
