Muir Woods 2008
By user12607856 on Apr 23, 2008
Another trip we did about a week ago was up to Muir Woods in Marin County. The weather was perfect, there were not a lot of people around, we had great parking karma and this time I even remembered to take a better camera.
This year is the 100th anniversary of the creation of this park.
We went out on one of the high trails this time and we could look down on the creek that runs through the woods. Then we came back along a lower trail.
The cross section is from a tree that is over 1000 years old. It was planted in 909 AD and fell in 1930. You can see some important dates in history labelled across its rings.
The black shadows in the water shot are from a water strider.
From the distance we walked, I think that next time, Duncan will be up to walking one of the other longer trails that are available to the public. We may even get to see the ocean.
