These photos were all taken around San Francisco and in Muir Woods. The flower photos are dedicated to Orange Clouds. I will never be as good as she is at doing close up photos of flowers, but I wanted to take these photos for her! San Francisco has some of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. I loved the trees, too. Some types of trees in the Bay Area are really unique, unlike any I have seen elsewhere in America. I don't know how to describe them, other than to say that they look as if they braided their hair overnight and then combed it out the next day into gorgeous waves. I don't think my photos allow one to fully appreciate how beautiful they are.
