In the past, I've been to Muir Woods National Monument several times and have hiked a vast portion of the trails. I also recently hiked Mt. Tamalpais. This is, however, the first time that I took a camera with me, and here are some pictures of some amazing views. This time in Muir Woods, we did a short half-day hike that started at the visitor center and then went along the Ocean View trail to Redwood Trail to Sun Trail to Dipsea Trail back to Muir woods (about six miles or so). We then had time to go up to Mt. Tamalpais and catch some awesome views of the bay.
