Happy Easter: Muir Woods



Easter 2016 is in the books. I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter weekend. We spent the day enjoying each others company and the gifts that the Easter Bunny stopped by and dropped off. The house was even a little decorated for the holiday. We decided to get out of the house and head over to the Muir Woods.

We had never made the two hour drive over so we decided to go on Easter Sunday. We thought it would be less crowded with people doing Easter activities but we were outsmarted because it was packed! We had a really great time though and did one of the three mile paths.

Muir Woods is filled with giant and ancient redwood trees. It's a haven for wildlife deep inside the national park and the trails are perfect for novice of advanced hikers. We had a really great time and enjoyed the leisure trail.



The trees are literally so tall that a majority of the sunlight doesn't touch the ground so moss and green plants grow.
 


 

 
We saw this giant spider web and the spider hanging out in the middle of his web.

We also saw these green plants every where. I have no idea what they are but we thought they looked very Willy Wonka and Tim Burton.

 
 
It was a great first Easter holiday married. If you get the chance to visit Muir Woods don't pass it up!
