NorCal Recap Part 1- Muir Woods

Visiting Muir Woods has been on my bucket list for a while, and it did not disappoint. Muir Woods National Monument is about 12 miles north of San Francisco, right over the Golden Gate Bridge. We made it a pit stop along the way of our drive from SF up to wine country.

This excursion is a definite must do for any nature lover. The woods are made up of old growth redwood trees and the land was declared a national monument by Teddy Roosevelt in 1908. Most of redwoods are between 500-800 years old, the oldest being around 1,200 years... and they're HUGE!

It was so gorgeous and peaceful walking among the huge redwoods. If you're in the area you can make Muir Woods a quick trip (a boardwalk meanders through a redwood grove) or you can do a longer hike up the surrounding Mount Tamalpais.
