Scottish-born John Muir champions protection. In 1864, Congress passes an act to reserve it for "public use, resort and recreation" and hands control to the state of California. Meanwhile in Wyoming territory, visitors are attracted to a landscape of geysers, mud pots and sulfur pits. Congress protects this land in 1872. But because it is in a territory, Yellowstone becomes America's first national park. Part 1 of 6 G
