These were taken on a walk through the incredible Muir Woods two days before our fourth child was born.

Beautiful, I love tall trees, I have never seen any so big that I can remember! Hey I think it's neat how the 2nd tree twists!

They are redwoods in Muir Woods, just north of San Francisco. They really are huge - here is a cool link about Muir Woods:
http://www.nps.gov/muwo
with some info on their height

"Did You Know?
Coastal redwood trees have indeterminate growth. The tallest recorded to date is 379.1 feet tall or 115.5 meters. This is the same height as a 35 story building."

It is a lovely and easy walk (not really a hike). It will always hold a special place in my heart since we were there right before we had our fourth child!
