My good friend, Sheena, and her friend, Arel, have just moved to San Francisco from Barbados. I’ve been so excited for this day and it’s been fun exploring the bay area with them. There are so many amazing places to visit and it was such a treat to get to take them to Muir Woods the other weekend!

The trail has these fun little bridges to cross over water streams when there is a large water flow.
Look at these cute Bajan babes!
Rob came along, too 🙂
They are adorable!

Views for miles.
You can access the Muir Woods trails from many different access points. We started from Panormaic Highway on the ridge and hiked down before hiking back up and out. If you park at the bottom and end up at the National Monument for the Redwood trees, there is a fee but if you are just going for the hike, make sure to look up access points before you go. It’s a great hike!

The temperatures are slowly starting to drop but the sun is still shining so what better way to spend the time then to get outside and enjoy it. Rob and I headed to Muir Woods over the weekend so get a good hike in and breathe the fresh air. We ended up hiking up through the redwoods to the Panoramic highway and then back down through the Dipsea trail. It was beautiful and refreshing and a great way to have a staycation.
The trees are so massive and beautiful. Most of them are over 2,000 years old, pretty incredible.
Playing around with the Hipstomatic App. My favorite is still the Pro HDR app for photography.
The canopies stand at over 300 ft tall.
It is the true Fern Gully. Simply stunning.
Someone had strewn christmas ornaments along the trails!
We thought we might get lucky and the Tourist Club would be open but we must have missed it for December.
You can’t beat the views.

Happy New Year! We will be back in 2015 🙂
