Muir Woods

Dress- 1960s Vintage:: Purse- 1950s Vintage:: Shoes- 1970s Vintage:: Belt- Thrifted
I spent this past weekend nestled among the California Redwood trees of Muir Woods National Monument. Matthew and I took an eight mile hike up Dyson Ridge, and ended our trek near the Pelican Inn just outside Muir Beach. Our surroundings were rather eerie, with the landscape covered in a thick layer  fog and the forest floor damp from the mist overhead. While I clearly did not wear this getup on our hike, I changed into this 1960s shift dress before heading to dinner in Sausalito. We snapped some of these photographs on the way out of the park as the sun was setting and rain clouds were gathering overhead. The landscape pictures were taken during our hike up Dyson Ridge and the surrounding forest in the park. The bright orange lichen was especially surreal in person- so vibrant against the lush green backdrop.

Woah, this is soo pretty. I bet that orange fungus did look pretty weird in real life, it almost looks like something you'd see in a sci-fi movie (spoken like a true city girl). And that dress is adorable! I love it's shape and lines. And I was to poke fun at you that you made an 8 mile trek in such a dress, but good thing I read ahead ;)
