(VUSA) Day 14: Redwoods & the Golden Gate

Redwoods

A Redwood Tree in Muir Woods National Monument

Today we visited the Golden Gate National Recreation Area for most of the day which included a visit to Muir Woods, home to some of the famous Coastal Redwoods, and a stop at a vista-point practically on top of the Golden Gate Bridge. Though the redwoods are not as large as Sequoias in DBH, I was awed by the height of the trees. They are very beautiful, and it is unfortunate so many have been cut down.

The view of the Golden Gate Bridge was amazing, as you can see from the panorama below.
