John Muir Festival 2014 Gallery

    The John Muir Festival 2014 celebrates the life and legacy of pioneering conservationist John Muir,  and marked the opening of a new national pathway, the John Muir Way, named in his honour.

    A host of events took place: ramblers, runners and cyclists carried Muir-themed flags along sections, while a gang of bearded John Muir lookalikes provided fun photo opportunities as well as thought-provoking quotes from Muir’s writings. A camera obscura offered a new perspective on the surrounding landscape. In a quieter, more reflective tribute, an American and a Scots poet walked the length of the John Muir Way at their own unhurried pace, planting native seeds and writing poetry along the way.
