It's a hairy ride going into Muir woods. First you get to take a narrow mountain-side road with numerous hairpin turns. This picture does not justify the fear and terror it invokes while driving towards Muir woods.
Once in the park, there's many trails to take. One of these is going up a mountain side. The trail is well established, and I wish that I had more time to keep going til I reach the zennith with the breath-taking view. But time was short, and I had no wish to get caught in the dark on this mountain side amongst the woods. I don't want to be some wild animals meal.
