“The power of imagination makes us infinite.” – John Muir
This week’s Muir Monday photo comes from a hiking friend, Robert Randall. Bob and I hiked Mt. Baldy together a few years ago, and more recently, Echo Mountain.
Bob captured this fantastic shot of the Milky Way looking southward over Middle Chain Lake in Yosemite National Park. He writes:
Six of us backpacked into Chain Lakes, located in the southernmost part of Yosemite. There are three lakes linked together by streams and ponds. It’s a beautiful, serene place and the fishing is good. We packed in on Friday and out on Monday.”

A Note about Muir Monday
I started sharing the wisdom of John Muir on back in June, posting new quotes on Instagram and Facebook with a photo I’ve taken that supports the message. Muir had a way with words, and the Muir Monday meme has proven popular. Beginning today, I’m trying out a new approach, sharing these inspirational words here on SoCal Hiker. Each Monday you’ll find a new quote to inspire you. Please spread the word, and share with your friends on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Google+ or whatever networks you prefer.

That’s a great photo. And it gives you a bit of a taste of what it would be like to be on the trail. Very very cool.

Oscar, it’s amazing when you get away from the city and can actually see the Milky Way. Really puts things into perspective.
