Yesterday, I spent the day hiking in the beautiful redwood forests of Muir Woods. This lovely wooded area is officially in Marin County or the ‘North Bay’ of the San Francisco Bay Area. The climate, the culture of San Francisco and the outdoor offerings such as the Muir Woods experience contributes to the regional desirability of the San Francisco Bay Area. It was a very peaceful and serene feeling. The weather was exquisite – sunny and cool.
For lack of a better word, I really felt the ‘awesomeness’ of Nature. Perhaps the contrast with the concrete harshness and tempo of the City (San Francisco) allows one to become more sensitive to natural surroundings.
I thought the soft fern-like plants (below) were lovely and interesting in contrast to the giant majestic redwoods.
