Muir Woods is 12 miles north of San Francisco and probably one of the most serene, beautiful and magical places I have ever seen. Standing there among the old growth Giant Redwoods, I pictured every fantasy novel I have ever read. This is the place where goblins, harpies, wizards and unicorns live.
Most of these old growth forests are gone due to logging. I cannot comprehend cutting these magnificent beasts down and have a better understanding of the protests that occurred years ago against the logging companies.
