Labbit Travels: Muir Woods, Marin County, CA

Now this is more like it! Pipkin and Domo had spent the early morning at the Golden Gate bridge, and although it was nice to look at, hopping across the bridge exposed to cold winds, cars rushing by and cyclists (who never look out for little labbits underfoot) wasn't a big bunch of carrots to Pipkin. He needed to feel more like a labbit, so the two headed north of the city to visit Muir Woods National Monument


In the tranquility of the forest, one can really take in the surroundings and look up at the giant redwood trees in quiet awe.


Mostly.


Sometimes you just have to lead by example. Calm labbit, calm Domo.


Pipkin was tempted to taste the wood sorrel, which looked like tiny sun parasols, but he decided to leave it to the locals to eat. The chipmunk below really seemed to like it.



Pipkin promised Domo there would be some good climbing, and after an afternoon of scrambling over roots and rocks and getting into giant tree trunk caves, Domo agreed being in the woods could be as much fun as being in the city.

Domo: Hey, let's pretend we're walking to Mordor!
Pipkin: One does not simply walk into Mordor...

  1. Although it would be a lot easier to simply walk into Mordor if you're as small as Pip and Domo...

  2. "One does not simply walk into Mordor..."

    Unless you are Pipkin and Domo. They're invincible.
