What to do with a Nicaraguan guest who works on rural sanitation, water systems and reforestation projects? Take her to Muir Woods National Monument to walk among the redwoods, naturally.
A few photos from that corridor of light and shadow:
It's fun to look straight up in such a tall forest.
Or at reflections in the stream.
As well as toward the light.
The moss likes it the dark and damp (I needed a flash).
The trees grow burls at their bases that enable them to throw out green shoots.
The light seems unnaturally bright on the way out.
