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.



In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.  – John Muir










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




The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness. – John Muir



Trees higher than I could see.  Surrounded and protected.


Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and to pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. – John Muir



It can be hard job being eights weeks old 🙂




When California was wild, it was the floweriest corner of the continent.  – John Muir





This place is precious.

Be well 🙂
