Sierra, he studied the flora and fauna and sketched the mountain scenery.f\After a stint as a shepherd, Muir was employed at a newly constructed sawmill alongside the present-day Lower Yosemite Fall trail in the Valley. Muir started building his own Yosemite Creek cabin, if only so he could hear the sound of the water as he slept in Yosemite’s bountiful valley. , Hisfirst article for publicationon glaciers, was published in the New York TribuneSeptember of 1871.John Muir is considered the father of the United States National Park.In 1889, Muir took Robert Underwood Johnson, editor of Century Magazine, to Tuolumne Meadows so he could see how sheep were damaging the land. Muir convinced Johnson that the area could only be saved if itwere incorporated into a national park. Johnson’s publication of Muir’s exposés sparked a bill in the U.S. Congress that proposed creating a new federally administered park surrounding the old Yosemite Grant. Yosemite National Park became a reality in 1890, and Muir is considered the father of our USA National Parks Service. .
