After leaving San Francisco, we made sure to stop in Muir Woods on our way to a 2-night stay in Yosemite. It’s so hard to describe the majestic beauty and solitude of this place. Pictures help to capture the experience. I caught my daughter, Avery, with her arms open wide as she took in the beauty and wonderful smell of the forest; a picture of Terri and me feeling quite small next to a massive tree, and a couple of shots of the surrounding scenery. Blood pressure is falling. Vacation is starting to take hold.
