Diablo Oak

Diablo Oak, originally uploaded by ParsecTraveller.

This stately oak is located at some picnic tables in Diablo Foothills Regional Park. The park does not have much of a reputation...

...but what an amazing park it is! Huge rock formations, hundreds of feet tall, jut from the Earth and support owls and raptor nests. Pine Creek fills the canyon with the smell of water and carpets of California poppies bloom upstream.

It's like a paradise that has been forgotten...a Shangri-La of the Bay Area sort.
