Into the Woods

As I zip through the Bay Area on BART to have dinner with my former roommate Heidi, I thought I’d share a few photos from today’s jaunt out to see the redwoods at Muir Woods National Monument.

We only stayed a couple of hours and walked a fraction of the available trails, but even having seen only a bit of the park, I can say without hesitation that it’s amazingly beautiful and should be on everyone’s must-see list when visiting San Francisco and environs. And as odd as it might sound, don’t avoid it on a foggy, rainy day. That’s what we had today and the light was amazing and the rain made everything look incredibly lush. But do bring a rain jacket, because the $3 plastic rain ponchos are seriously goofy looking.

Ask me how I know…

And is it just me, or does it look like a dinosaur could step into any one of these photos and not look out of place? There is something seriously land before time about redwood forests. They just seem… beyond ancient.

    It is so good to see such beautiful pictures already from the Family Reunion! We are sorry to miss out on all the fun, but then a new baby coming is the most special event! Maureen didn’t have a good day today, and the little guy isn’t due to arrive til Thursday at 2 PM (C-Section). Thanks so much…it’s almost like being there! Have a wonderful trip beyond the California Coast line and keep the pictures coming!
