Yesterday our travels took us out to Muir Woods. The woods are situated about a 30 minute drive from San Francisco. We spent a couple of hours walking through this spectacular national park. The drive to get there was harrowing. And, the drive along coastal Highway 1 was even more fun. This video (3MB) gives you a bit of a sense of the drive.
I took over 100 pictures at the woods. The photo below does not give the sense of scale when you look at redwood trees that tower 200 feet or more into the air. Dramatic.
