Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #549 – April 14, 2017



Few places in this world are more dangerous than home. Fear not therefore to try the mountain passes. They will kill care, save you from deadly apathy, set you free, and call forth every faculty into vigorous, enthusiastic action.

—JOHN MUIR, The Mountains of California, 1894
