Snapshot Saturday: Postcard #10 Muir Woods National Monument


It's day 166 of our round-the-world trip, and our last weekend in California. Though it's a fairly chilly afternoon, we drove to Muir Woods National Monument in Marin County, a primeval forest named after naturalist John Muir. The average age of this forest's resident redwoods are 500-800 years old. The oldest is about 1,200 years old and the tallest is 79 meters. Not for nothing are these trees called giant redwoods.

Random trivia: Some scenes of the film "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" were shot here.
