Parts of Muir Woods are so overgrown with vegetation that it's hard to differentiate individual trees and plants. Photographers will generally advise you to avoid images like this one, where there is a lot of clutter and no central subject. In this case, however, I chose to view the whole of the forest as a single, wild mass of green.
We step into charming wild gardens....forming such sumptuous masses of bloom they make the gardens of civilization, however lovingly cared for, seem pathetic and silly.
