“Sacred spiritual site for all.”

When you walk along the trails in the John Muir National Monument, a sense of reverence is experienced as you pass the enormous “Coast Redwood trees

The Coast Redwood and Douglas-fir are the two dominant trees of the old-growth Redwood forest. The species associated with Redwood groves varies according to whether an area is upland, stream-side, along a flood plain or close to the ocean.

Everyone on the trail quietly saunters in the presence of Redwood trees with a lineage before everything was designed, developed and built by humanity in the Americas.

Awe is the word that best describes my feeling when I captured these photos.

John Muir National Monument is a federally protected primeval forest established in 1908. Today it is a refuge and laboratory revealing humanities relationship with a living landscape.

The John Muir National Monument is situated in a valley, and your eyes should gaze upon, or touch its beauty before our time upon this planet is complete.
