Conzelman Road and Muir Woods

Filed under Travel

I ventured across the Golden Gate Bridge for a second time to do a little sightseeing. The first place I went was the 2nd exit after you cross the bridge, Conzelman Road. It takes you very high up and gives you a great view of the bridge and the city.

Next, I went to Muir Woods. This is my favorite place I've seen in San Francisco so far. It is unbelievable. The Redwood trees are ginormous and take away almost all sunlight. Even though it was a warm day, once we got into the woods it got very chilly...a drop of 10 degrees if I had to guess. The ground is covered in lush ferns with crystal clear creeks flowing between the Redwoods. It has to be seen to be believed.

I was in such a rush to leave my apartment that I forgot to bring my good camera. So the pictures I took are pretty lame because they come from my camera phone. The pictures are here.

Google has much better pictures from Conzelman Road and Muir Woods.

I'm definitely going to go back to Muir Woods. It will be high on my list of things to show people that come visit.

I camped (illegally) in Pfeifer National Park south of San Fran after fleeing the city following a Dead show back in the early '90s. The redwood trees were so tall that at night they completely obscured all ambient light. It was like being blind. My friends lit up cigarettes and the light from the burning ash illuminated whole sections of the forest -- like beacons. Park rangers came along and told us to leave about 5 am in the morning.

Muir Woods is a great place. I had visited there once way back in '94 while on a trip to Silicon Valley. I remember thinking how cool it was to be amongst the trees and all, and to do so within a short drive of San Fran. On a related topic, have you thought about a trip to Yosemite? It's a little bit further away, though an amazing place.

Yosemite was on my short list before I moved to California...I'm definitely going!
