Muir Woods National Monument (Part 1) - With On The Road Photos

I took a trip to both Muir Woods National Monument and Sausalito (pretty close together) a few month back. I took many photos at these 2 places and will be splitting the photos into several blog posts. If you want to see my Muir Woods National Monument and Sausalito photos from last year, you can do so here.

Muir Woods National Monument is a park located in Mill Valley, CA, 12 miles north of San Francisco. It is famous for its Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) trees. This forest of trees is one of the few forests of this type of tree still standing in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing.

If you have been to Muir Woods National Monument, you would know parking is always a pain there. I had to walk pretty far from where I parked to get to the park. This photo was shot in Mount Tamalpais State Park, a park bordering Muir Woods National Monument.

The other side of the fallen tree. The tree was actually blocking the trail, therefore, the rangers had to cut out the section that was blocking the trail.
