"Before European settlers started exterminating them during the Gold Rush, there were tens of thousands of grizzly bears in California. My research has turned up reports of 2,000-pound bears and of hunters boasting of killing 45 bears in one year. By 1925 they were gone. Uzumati was the native Miwok word for grizzly bear and is the source of the name we use for the park today - Yosemite." -Stephen

“He paints the wilderness with a knowledge and genuineness that can only be expressed by someone who has ‘been there’.”
Stephen Lyman was an explorer who specialized in painting the most elusive moments in nature. His inspiring work was inspired, in turn, by the writing and teachings of famous naturalist John Muir. "Muir wrote, 'Climb the mountains and get their good tidings,'" Stephen said. "I know exactly what he meant." Stephen's love of the great outdoors stemmed from a childhood spent in the Pacific Northwest, where hiking in Snake River country was a regular family ritual.
