While I was in San Fransisco we took a little day trip north to Sonoma County for some wine tastings. On the way we stopped at Muir Woods, a national park 12 miles north of the city. It is a small redwood forest, and is utterly breathtaking.
We arrived mid morning after the early morning rain had stopped. The air was still damp and clean and drops fell occasionally from the leaves. It was the smell though that most impacted me, it was so beautiful. An almost floral, fresh evergreen type sent. I wanted to bottle it and take it with me. As we walked among the trees and mist rose, the sun streamed through the branches. It was timeless and magical.
