we took a drive up the windy california 1 my last nite in san francisco hoping to make it to muir woods before it closed for the day. we just missed it, but the drive was worth it. going through the hills and valleys was beautiful, especially during sunset. we even saw a couple of deer and turkeys. seriously, what an amazingly beautiful part of the country. i'm so glad i got to visit and hope i can go back some day.
