Sequoias

Redwoods
Fall among the Redwoods
Redwood tree rings
Thistle and Fennel
Over the river and throught the woods...
Fall leaves
Very well camuflaged deer
The other place we totally fell in love with is the Muir Woods National Monument.
It was absolutely breathtaking & inspiring to walk amongst the redwood trees.
We even caught a glimpse of a very well camouflaged deer!
Can you spot it in the last photo?

breathtaking indeed! My favorite is the second to last... something about the water, and the leaves and the rocks, so many elements of God's wonderful creation wrapped up into one pretty image!

I love the large format of the first picture, it does justice to the magnificent giants...I've visited Muir Woods a couple of times and have found it magical.

Very, very beautiful photos. Totally opposite scale from Margie's world. Forest giants versus wood nymphs. :)

What absolutely gorgeous photos!

This place seems so incredibly tranquil. I seriously need to start making lists of what to do when I go to all the places I'm dreaming of going... In case I ever get around to it.

Lovely photos. One poster asked if you hugged the tree...just hope you didn't hug the poison oak. ;)

Beautiful photos!

I found you through Habit and was wondering about where you got that beautiful planner in your photo from October 20th? It looks lovely and spacious, just what I am looking for.

Thanks!

So beautiful! Do you know if that stump has been inked, or is it naturally black? Have you ever seen a tree stump print?

I live quite close to here. It is a very magical place. Your art work is hanging nearby by the way! Love your photos from San Fran, you capture it in such a lovely way. Can't wait to see the artwork it inspires.

I live in the Bay Area and am so glad that you enjoyed Muir Woods, San Francisco, and Big Sur as well as the wonderful cafe with delicious pastries. Your picture of Morran is also a delight. As you can imagine, I am a great fan of yours and recently told a friend who lives in Queretaro about your art/illlustration. Thanks for your nice blog...so inspiring and creative.

So glad you visited Nor Cal! Muir Woods is my most favoritest place in the world! A feast for the imagination to run wild with fairies and other delights that I'm sure dwell beneath the canopy. Were you able to see any banana slugs?

!Qué belleza de fotos! Cuando yo fui era verano y no recuerdo tanto musgo cubriendo los troncos. ¿Conoces al fotógrafo Ansel Adams? Me compré un libro de fotos suyas de Muir Woods. Te lo recomiendo! Como me gustaría volver!!

I saw the deer in your photo but not when we visited. I adore Muir Woods. We got there early in the morning before the tour buses and it was like we were the only people left in the world. The peace and quiet was amazing! Did you go to Muir Beach, also? It's one of my very favorite beaches.

It looks like paradise...In Brazil the forests are very dense with almost no paths to walk through. You almost never see the animals...only the birds! American forests are amazing!
I've been to Sequoia Park many years ago and it was beautiful...
