San Francisco Day 1

Golden Gate Bridge.



Picking up a snack along the road to Muir Woods.
Muir Woods is a redwood forest. Coastal redwoods are the tallest trees in the world. Some of the trees here are over 1,000 years old! Is there anything more majestic and respectable than a towering ancient tree, nobly withstanding the tests of time?




After Muir Woods, we drove north on Hwy 1, up the Pacific coast.

We ended the day at Fisherman's Wharf, dinner at Bubba Gump's Shrimp restaurant. Tomorrow, we explore south on Hwy 1.

Beautiful pictures. I think I may have to talk Jim into a trip to northern California. San Francisco is as far north as we've been. I hope the travel doesn't interfere with work. Relax and enjoy.
