san Francisco and Me 4 - Muir Woods



I was most excited about going to Muir Woods, where I would see ancient redwood trees, some over a thousand years old. They towered over us and were wider than the arms could encircle. In an area called the Cathedral Grove, I understood the sacredness of the space - with all the majestic nature surrounding me, and in my ear, the ethereal sound of the wind tickling the leaves.





Interestingly enough, I decided to draw all the littlest things I could find.

Ok. . . what is a chuk chuk bird?

ok, you caught me, I made the term "chuk chuk" up...but it's inspired by the sound that the little critter made.
