Hot hot day today in Oakland. What to do? Pack everything up and head out to take refuge under the trees. Spent the day amongst the redwoods of Muir Woods. As soon as I got there, I was reminded that I really need to do it much more often.
We weren't the only ones with that idea. It was rather packed with people. But even all the crowds along the walkway can't diminish the beauty or the majesty of those ancient giants. And when you stand on the path and crane your head up to see the sun streaming through from so high up, and hear the distant rustle of the leaves, there is a peace and calm that steals through you.
