Muir Woods and Sausalito

Last, but certainly not least in my San Francisco and wine country recaps is from our last full day which we spent crossing the Golden Gate Bridge again (yay!) going to Muir Woods and the picturesque town of Sausalito.


Due to the shaded wooded area at Muir Woods, and the bright sun in Sausalito most of pictures are either too dark or too bright. And you know what? That's ok. As I mentioned when we returned from our trip here, I have stopped caring about the unattainable which is the perfectly staged photo, and am just enjoying those around me and living in the moment which is absolutely freeing.

*The redwood trees were absolutely stunning in person*






I kept taking deep breaths, because the air was so fresh and so clean (so fresh and so clean clean - you're welcome for that song in your head now). Pictures, especially my dark and shaded ones will never do this place justice. Absolutely amazing!



Next up, we went into Sausalito for the afternoon where we enjoyed brunch at Barrel House Tavern which boasted amazing views of the water and the San Francisco skyline.





*Blurry, but one of my favs*

  17. I've never been to San Francisco before, but if I ever have the opportunity to go, Muir Woods will certainly be a first stop! It looks like such a great hiking spot :)

  18. Oh my gosh! Saulsalito was one of our favorite parts of our trip there - it's the cutest little town!

  19. We drove through Sausalito and it looked like a cute little town but never made it to Muir Woods. I was tempted but really didn't want to "go into the woods" by myself since I was in SF alone for a work trip. I heard phone service is iffy there but it sure does look gorgeous to explore someday!
    Have a great weekend lady!

  22. Muir Woods and Sausalito are SO beautiful. Sausalito is like straight out of a dream... what a picturesque place! I visited them in 2011 (WOW where did the time go) and would love to go back. PS- I love your bag!! And I can't believe it's under $30! How much would you say it holds? (I have a tan bag that I can barely fit anything in anymore :( )

  29. Wow, what an incredible park to visit! I can only imagine how small you felt among the trees. The views from the restaurant you went to afterward are incredible too. I think your pictures all turned out amazing- you definitely captured the beauty of the woods.
