Alhambra Valley Coast Live Oak

San Francisco Bay Area

I noticed this coast live oak from six miles away, on another hike in a different park. It was just a speck through my biggest lens, but still a striking character in the overall landscape of hills and sea. I wondered if I could find it on a map and get closer to it somehow.

I could, so I did. Closer up, the tree did not disappoint. Its shaggy shape and location near the top of a small, steep hill created a long shadow down the other side, in contrast to the bright grass. A companion cow reclines near the bottom of the hill, with Suisun Bay in the background.
