Walking from Stinson Beach to Muir Woods and Back
Monday, May 29, 2006
- Miriam had the idea to hike Stinson Beach to Muir Woods - a great idea.
- The hair is looking a bit random.
- Entering the forest.
- The steps climb Cardiac Hill forever, or, about an hour.
- Tunnel of trees
- Covered in moss
- Only a short way, we looked back, and already had a great view of the bay at Stinson Beach. Beyond that lick of land is the Pacific Ocean.
- A tangle of smaller trees bend towards the sun
- We conquered Cardiac Hill and were rewarded with the view east and south
- I believe the peak in the distance - slightly to the left - is Mt. Diablo in the east bay
- Our path winds along the brown hills but is cooled by the blue bay
- Looking at the person taking the picture ...
- ... and this time looking into the camera
- At the entrance to Muir Woods, about 5 miles from where we started
- A very tall very green very shrubbery tree
- The green
- The dappled light
- The picture without flash
- Mom and baby
- Another family
- Forget me not
- The corny sun going down in trees on the long way back
- Now the views are from the other direction. Namely, almost identical as on the way over!
- Brown hills of late May
- The triumphant duo, as captured by young couple who wanted us to take their picture, and then we asked them to take our picture.
- Over there is San Francisco.
- Over here are green and brown meadow
- Tres beautiful, gray green pale yellow
- Sometimes trees get tired
- It was nearing 8 p.m. when we got in sight of the beach and the ocean. Or maybe it was 7:30.
- The Sand
Dollar Restaurant closed early and wouldn't seat us because they just
discovered a problem with the plumbing system, it wouldn't flush, and
Health Department regulations indicate they need to shut down. We
went across the street.
