A Family Walk In Muir Woods

Four years ago, on a trip to San Francisco to meet my new nephew, we visited Muir Woods. It was one of the most peaceful afternoons of my entire life. I don’t know very much about John Muir, but I know enough to be tremendously grateful for him and his advocacy.

As we walked deeper into the woods, silence became more silent.  So few places offer stillness in our time.
