A little more Muir

Good morning,
  1. A little quick comprehension check on our reading from yesterday. This quiz is easy. If you were here and breathing you should do fine.  TAKE THE QUIZ ON MUIR
  2. You can even go back and REVIEW THE TEXT OF THE EXCERPT if that helps you with the quiz.
  3. Now paste the text below into your English Journal and EXPLAIN what Muir is saying in your OWN WORDS.
"We all travel the milky way together, trees and men; but it never occurred to me until this storm-day, while swinging in the wind, that trees are travelers, in the ordinary sense. They make many journeys, not extensive ones, it is true; but our own little journeys, away and back again, are only little more than tree-wavings--many of them not so much."
