Muir Woods National Monument
It has been a lovely break with my family... their desire and love for nature matches my own and inspires me! We decided to hop in the car and take a day trip to Muir Woods, just outside of San Francisco. My brother David led the expidition, Dad found a trail to hike, and Mom packed a pic-nic lunch. The towering red wood forrests and green fern-filled floors make it hard to believe this place is so close to home! The biggest treat of the day was chasing the sun and finding an overlook of the bay and the ocean. 

"God never made an ugly landscape. All that the sun shines on is beautiful, so long as it is wild."- John Muir

"It was here that the romance of my life began."- Teddy Roosevelt

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." -John Muir
