Jill and I visited six years ago to celebrate her 21st birthday. For this trip with Elliott, there were some new-to-me sites, and some revisited favorites. Muir Woods was a new attraction, and I'm so glad we went.
Muir Woods is incredible, and we were lucky enough to have good weather for our early morning visit. Instead of renting a car and dealing with parking, we chose to go with a small tour group (there were only five people in our van), care of Extranomical Tours. We had about two hours to spend in the woods, and I made good use of my time and camera.
What struck me the most about the woods is that certain trees were positively glowing. I'm guessing it was a combination of the moss and sunlight.
Postively beautiful. Elliott and I walked along the trail for almost two hours, pausing to take pictures (pretty frequently) and enjoying existence.
It's a very magical place. I definitely want to go back someday, just to make sure the magic of these giant trees still exists.
I'm pretty sure I won't be disappointed.
