We traveled to Muir Woods National Park just 15 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge!  It is an incredible valley that is home to a forest of coastal redwoods that are the largest living things on the planet - some growing well over 300 feet tall!

Click on this image to see the dates printed on the rings of this tree.  It is estimated to be  1021 years old when it fell in 1930!!

Wow!  Manon was hungry!  She finished her entire salad when we stopped at an organic grocer for dinner.

We saw these two hitchhiking along the highway.  Should we pick them up?
