During our visit to San Francisco, we took a short day trip to get away from the city for a little while to see Muir Woods. Without a doubt, it was one of the top highlights of our visit to the west coast. It is one thing to read about the beauty of this area in a travel book, but seeing it firsthand is another. More than a million people visit this park each year. And, it’s the trees that capture everyone’s interest here. In addition to the magnificent redwoods and other trees, you might see a black-tail deer or two.
