Tall Trees

My first foray into Day 2!!  We started the second day with a trip to Muir Woods National Monument.

We tried going the afternoon before, but it was Sunday and the place was packed.

We figured Monday morning would be much more hospitable, score one for the good guys!

So we had a couple hours to wonder among some really tall giants for trees.

Muir Woods is one of the remaining groves of Coastal Redwoods that is located real close to San Francisco.

The oldest tree within the park  is estimated to be over 600 years old and over 252 feet tall.  The tallest living Redwood is over 379 feet tall!!

It’s an amazing experience to walk amongst these giants.  The problem is, its really hard to capture the grandness of them in a picture.

Its near impossible to take a picture that can fully convey the majestic nature of these trees.

My hats off to those who have achieved it.

This photograph is my shot at trying to capture the feeling of standing among these tall trees.

I hope you enjoy.
