Ode to Muir Film

The English Department is hosting a welcome back film, "Ode to Muir".  John Muir (1838-1914) was a writer, naturalist, and co-founder of the Sierra Club; he was also instrumental in establishing Yosemite National Park. The film, though, is actually about snowboarders trekking through the John Muir Wilderness. Here is how the producers describe the film: 

Teton Gravity's newest film Ode To Muir pairs professional snowboarder, adventurer and founder of Protect Our Winters Jeremy Jones with two-time Olympian Elena Hight as they embark on a 40-mile foot-powered expedition deep into California’s John Muir Wilderness. Their journey balances the challenges of winter camping, grueling climbs up the Sierra’s biggest mountains, and aesthetic first descents with personal reflections on the importance of the natural world and those who first traveled it generations ago, and sharing perspectives gleaned from what it truly means to explore a great American Wilderness.
