Muir Woods, just across the Golden Gate Bridge. Images don't do justice to the aswsome size of the Redwood trees. You think I'm old, Google Muir Woods and check out how long these have been around.
Gee, Napa Valley is only an hour northeast of San Francisco so what the heck, left Muir Woods, drove back into the city to pick up the official race packets (yes, another half marathon for my wife and son this time too). Got kind of lost east of the Presidio, finally found the shoe store where the packets were being handed out and then on to Napa. While I love the Santa Ynez Valley primarily for the cycling environment, I readily admit it hardly holds a candle to Napa for wineries. Looking at the map, there is one famous winery after another, such as "Two Buck Chuck, Lambrusco, Little Penguin, etc..." AMAZING!!!!. Unfortunately, my wife and son are not wine drinkers so it was hard to enjoy the experience after 20-25 winery visits and tastings. I don't remember much about the trip but made it back to San Fran. Hey, the Half Marathon is Sunday.
