The exhibit "A Walk in the Wild: Continuing John Muir's Journey" opened at the Oakland Museum of California this month. We discuss the exhibit, which attempts to recreate John Muir's experiences and adventures in California's wilderness.

We also explore the life, legend and legacy of the man known as "The Father of the National Parks."
