California Redwoods

Sunlit redwood grove in Muir Woods National Monument.

Sometimes it is easier to show beauty in a few photos rather than trying to write about it. The coastal redwoods of California are arguably some of the tallest and most beautiful trees in the world, and Muir Woods National Monument, just north of the San Francisco Bay Area, is home to a large number of these majestic trees. Let me share a few photos from our visit to Muir Woods last March.

Seedling redwoods sprouting up from the forest floor.
Reach for the sky! Mature redwoods can grow well over 300 feet in height, but their growth depends on local conditions. The tallest tree in Muir Woods is about 250 feet tall.
Mature redwoods in the Cathedral Grove area of the National Monument. A great place to silently contemplate God’s creation.
By the way, some of these trees are REALLY old. This one dated back to about 900 A.D. although there may be older trees still growing in the National Monument.
