Muir Woods is fantastic year round – depending on the time of year, it can be damp and cool or warm and dry – rarely hot. Tripods are allowed and recommended due to the dim light when entering the canopy of tree’s. During sunset, you may catch god-rays splaying thru the tree’s if you follow the sun’s progress later in the afternoon.

I’m photographing a proposal here on Saturday. Would love to pick your brain about the best focal length to bring and if there is enough light from 8-9am

I don’t know why, but I love taking pictures of the forest landscape. I think it would be really nice to travel to California for a photo shoot at this location. I think you could get some really nice pictures.
