I love the stillness of the forest early in the morning and the way light illuminates the paths throughout Muir Woods. I love how light passes through the redwoods, casting shadows onto certain pockets of the forest.
Though I do like the bustle of the city, it's energizing to spend time away from the constant motion as well. Visiting Muir Woods felt like an adventure, though it wasn't far from home. It's this that draws me to the city--it has the bustle of a city, but it's also close to nature.
