Re: Christian's back: the honeymoon report (some Audi

Probably no one commented on the Muir Wood name (origin) 'cause Chris
didn't actually make a claim about it.

On the other hand, I'm surprised Californians didn't correct Chris's
impression that "150 yr old redwoods" are something special. Redwoods have
been known to live 2000 yrs, so 150 year old redwoods in Muir Woods are
really babies--I recall the big ones there are probably 500 or more years
old. Maybe he meant to say 1500 yr old. It's a great destination to put on
the list while touring northern California (preferably in an Audi, but
anyway you can.)
