Explore the Planet—especially your own “backyard”!
We in Placer County have been gifted with many miles of beautiful, peaceful, educational, and delightful trail “get aways.”
As the Sierra Club’s founder said, "Few are altogether deaf to the preaching of pine trees. Their sermons on the mountains go to our hearts; and if people in general could be got into the woods, even for once, to hear the trees speak for themselves, all difficulties in the way of forest preservation would vanish.” - John Muir, "The National Parks and Forest Reservations" in a speech by John Muir (Proceedings of the Meeting of the Sierra Club Held November 23, 1895.) Published in Sierra Club Bulletin, (1896), v. 1, no. 7, January 1896, pp 271-284, at 282-83.
Can you guess where this was taken from? Hint: Less than five miles from Auburn, CA....
Enjoy Placer Group's "backyard" and help us protect them!
