    What better way to wake to a chilly Saturday morning and start off with an AWSOME hike in Muir Woods! Gets no better! :-) thanks for another OA adventure Theresa and Clay. I ALWAYS meet such friendly, nature minded sistahs and brothas' that recognize the beauty of exploring nature and our environment ...Muir woods was no exception! Looking forward to the next "adventure" Outdoor Afro !

    2 Outdoor Afros in Muir Woods.
    Muir Woods was just lovely yesterday. Even though Kelly and I got there late and completely missed the group we hiked an enchanting forest trail at an easy pace. Taking the Ben Jensen trail to the Dipsea trail , stopping to rest, nourish, gaze and soak in the wonder of these ancient woods along the way. At several points we worried about taking a wrong turn and having to do more uphill climbing than we needed to but directions from various other hikers got us to a beautiful vista in a meadow overlooking the Pacific Ocean. More gazing and nourishment as we sat and just leisurely enjoyed the feel of the warm sun on our faces. Making our way back took us half the time of course and we had the extremely good fortune to spot a Barred Owl sitting in a tree. ( Kelly is very observant).

    We were so sorry to have missed the group but would not have missed this beautiful forest for anything.
