Muir Woods, north of SF. I don't know how long I'm going to stay in CA but there's so much my (soon to be) ex wouldn't do with me and I'm trying to knock a few things off the list. My brother was out here for a few days so we drove up there and went hiking. It's beautiful.
If you haven't checked it out already, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park has some similarly scenic spots. From Santa Cruz up Highway 9 through there is a really nice drive.
I have! I love it, and it's actually really close to me now that I'm on the south end of the city (near 85 and 87). I've done Santa Cruz and that park on the same day a few times and it's beautiful, and not as insanely crowded.
Do you live in the area, or are you just visiting?

My wife and daughter are headed to Santa Cruz for a college tour next week.

If you like trees, head North on 101.

He would, he's a monster!

Kestra, beautiful pics. I may be biased, but there is nowhere in the world for scenery like the pacific northwest.
Here is a shot I took 7 or 8 years ago, off the coast of the Makah Indian reservation -- the nothingness as the Pacific Ocean obscured by fog:

I see Bigfoot!



Very cool photo. Fog always makes things so much more intriguing and mysterious, especially wooded areas. It adds a primitive appeal and ambience to the entire scene.

Have you ever been to the Great Smoky Mountains out East near my neck of the woods?

Boo!

The Appalachians and Blue Ridge are mountains and nobody will ever convince me otherwise! (*Starts playing John Denver songs*)

^I grew up in the shadow of Tahoma The Ghost Mountain (Rainier). It takes much to impress me!

I live in the area. I really love it out here, I'm just not sure if I'll be able to stay out here long term.

Anything is a mountain compared the corn fields where I grew up.

^When I was growing up, I used to put up with people from New Hampshire talking about how so flat Massachusetts is.

After a year in Louisiana, Massachusetts looks incredibly rugged and hilly, especially this close to Boston

Seriously, Southern Louisiana is flat, and I mean flat.

^That's true. New Orleans was the first place I visited outside the Pacific Northwest when I was a kid. That was contrast. I remember being in utter awe of how big the sky seemed.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Even within Virginia there are drastic changes in the topography as you travel from west to east. I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounded by rolling mounds that - in this part of the country anyways - count as mountains and are lushly covered in green foliage and the shadows and texture those trees and other plant create at sunrise and sunset.

But if you travel just a little to the east you enter "Flatginia." About 300 or so miles of largely flat real estate stretching from the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge to the Atlantic coast. Oh, there are hills and bumps out that way....but nothing to rival Mt. Rogers, the Peaks of Otter or McAffee's Knob.

Yeah. I know. McAffee's Knob. Go ahead. The rest of us have already spent our lives making fun of it.

Hills!

These are mountains! Regrettably taken awkwardly with an iPhone through an airplane window, when I flew out of Seattle last month is was one of the most stunning take-offs I've experienced, with all the volcanoes visible:

Re: PICTURE POST II!

My city is one of the only urban areas in the entire nation (perhaps the only one now that I think of it) that has a mountain located entirely within city limits. Our 100-foot neon star is perched on top along with one of the biggest zoos in the region.

This is a video that a local posted on YouTube.

I love my city and the surrounding mountains....big, snowcapped peaks or not. We're totally happy with them.
