While traveling through California, the e-tour got to stop at one of the premier historic sites of the conservation movement of the late 19th and early 20th century -- a campsite in Yosemite National Park where President Theodore Roosevelt, who was instrumental in the protection of many public lands and the US Forest Service, camped with John Muir, a leader of the preservationist movement and founder of the Sierra Club. The sign commemorating the spot said that President Roosevelt "talked forest good." All grammatical flaws aside, we like to think that with Leave No Trace we get to do that, too.
