If you follow me on instagram at all you would know that we visited Muir Woods a few weeks ago. This redwood forest is about 12 miles north of the city and definitely worth a trip. When we entered the national park area it was other-worldly. After getting over the initial feeling that I was in a Star Wars episode and that an ewok was going to jump out at me I started to appreciate the beauty around us. An almost eerie quiet blanketed the forest bed and redwoods towered over us as rays of sun shot through the tall branches. Some of these trees are hundreds and hundreds of years old, their trunks are so large that 7-8 people could join arms and wrap themselves around it. And the most amazing part? These aren't even the big guys-- you would have to drive several hours further nearly to Oregon to reach the massive redwoods, the ones with trunks so large they can be used as dance floors (yes, they really have that). California continues to surprise me with the vast contrast in climate and landscape. You truly can experience it all here, and we have been so thankful to see these things with our own eyes. If you ever get a chance, head to Muir Woods to take a step into a different world! Oh yes, dogs aren't allowed but being the rebels we are, we totally snuck Bella inside. She loved it, and was very quite and well behaved in her little bag. She loved smelling all the smells inside too! Here are just a handful of my favorite pictures from the day!
