I fully admit to the fact that I am a city girl. I love leaving my front steps and walking just a few blocks to my favorite restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and theaters. Having grown up in the country though, I still love my escapes to the great outdoors.
On a recent trip to San Francisco we had a free day to do as we pleased. I had never made it out to the beautiful Muir Woods despite having lived in the bay area for 3+ years. The day we went was surprisingly warm, a rarity for the bay area. The gorgeous centuries old trees provided us a stunning cover though. We ventured off the boardwalk and onto one of the parks beautiful winding trails. It was a perfect days escape from the city! And just look at those trees!!
If you ever make a trip out here remember to bring water and snacks. Also try to take the shuttle instead of driving! Parking is a mess! Enjoy the ride instead of worrying about getting there!
