Why John Muir settled in the East Bay

Muir’s gravesite is now open to the public. This podcast (22 mins) considers a side of “the father of America’s National Parks” that’s not widely known — his life in Contra Costa County, including stories of Muir’s local adventures, his family and why he was often spotted carrying “pillowcases full of money.”
