Default Shots from Muir Woods

Anyone visiting San Francisco should go to this park and take a day....or two like we did so we could take in more than one of the lengthy and sometimes steep nature walks.

Just behind of the front office at the entrance of the Muir Woods is the Coastal Redwood in the center of this image, and is over 20 stories tall..



Just "a little" bigger trunk than we're used to seeing in Dallas, Texas..





Tops of some red woods with a sun dog thrown in..



Bigger yet..











Late afternoon light..



A valley we spotted on the way to the park, first in the morning fog..



Then later, in the afternoon sun..

Hi Greg,
Looking at these images, bring back wonderful memories of the time our family visited Muir Woods. My wife and kids stood inside the same tree that Katherine is in, as have countless others, while I snapped off a photo.

Great shots, thanks for sharing and reminding me of a wonderful place.

Hey Greg beautiful shots, Someday I hope to see some redwoods in one of the western parks, looks like you had a lot of interesting scenes to shoot.

So when are those trees going to grow up : ) Nice shots, a lot of good material to work with in that place.

Definitely brings back memories, and some outstanding shots.

(The next time you go back, plan on taking a trip over to the giant Sequoia trees at Sequoia National Park, and see trees that make the redwoods seem small.)

Those are just really fab shots... the composition for pics 4, 6 and the last two is just spot on. I'll be making a trip to the Westcoast in a few months and if I can pencil in a trip to SF its sort of on my plans it'll be good to make a visit !
