After the Expedition


All expeditions have two lives. The first, of course, is the trip itself, the second, the record of what was found along the way. Few Alaskan expeditions left as complete a record as the 1899 Harriman trip, with its lavish souvenir albums, twelve published volumes, thousands of specimens, sketches, and photographs.

"Remember your penitential promises. Kill as few of your fellow beings as possible and pursue some branch of natural history at least far enough to see nature's harmony. Don't forget me. God bless you. Good-bye. Ever your friend, John Muir."

John Muir writing to the Harriman children in September of 1899.
