Garden Of Eden

What a day...and it has only just begun.

In 1863 Albert Bierstadt’s passion for nature is expressed in these words about Yosemite:
"We are now here in the garden of Eden I call it. 
The most magnificent place I was ever in, 
I employ every moment painting from nature...
We camp out altogether, get no news, 
and do not care for any for we are perfectly happy 
with the fine scenery, trout, ducks, deer, etc."
