West had heard about this beautiful place called Muir Woods. Nobody wanted to go! We had a long drive ahead of us, and we were a little nervous about the possibility of Brooke getting car sick. But, I gotta say, this place was unbelievable! The smells of these woods was unlike anything I have ever experienced! Crisp, clean, fragrant air. Tall redwood trees. I was so glad that we cooperated. We really didn't want to, I mean, we were heading to Yosemite, how different could it be? But it was worth every little minute of detour!
