Posted because this photo brings back memories of one of my most favorite hiking days ever. About 35-40 years ago I attended a national convention in San Francisco to present a paper. I then skipped out of the meeting for a day to drive with a couple colleagues up to Marin county to hike these woods and later visit local roadside wine and cheese establishments.
Muir Woods National Monument is flat-out awesome. I quite agree with a comment at the CozyPlaces via for this image that the best way to appreciate the grandeur is to get away from the paved trail and the attendant tourists and walk back someplace where you can be alone and gaze upward at the trees.
