What caught my photo interest this visit to Muir Woods was where nature met man. Along the paths roots were exposed and worn by thousands of feet and were still part of a living tree.

Another detail from the giant redwoods… Notice the burn. The tree have a natural fire inhibitant in their trunks. They need the surrounding growth to burn down regularly so they can have space to breathe and grow.
