Back Country Horsemen of Central Arizona shared Yosemite National Park's photo. ... See MoreSee Less

On September 3, 1964, President Johnson declared, "If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them something more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning." And then he signed the Wilderness Act, protecting among many things, "...an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man..." Of the 109 million acres of Wilderness, over 706,000 of them are here in Yosemite! So please, raise a water bottle in celebration of Wilderness and continue to learn what untrammeled is, explore the mountains, and protect this enduring resource for another 51 years.
