Under the Redwood Trees

Redwood trees and rays of light at Muir Woods

In every walk with nature, one receives far more than [one] seeks.

These words of John Muir greet us as we begin to explore the Muir Woods National Monument. As we are surrounded by stately redwoods that dwarf us and let just enough light through to illuminate us, those words float away from the sign and into our souls and perform their duty as a self-fulfilling prophecy.
