Fall Oak

Katie and I found this oak on a hike while in Julian celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary.

Interesting facts from my Dad: This is most likely a Black Oak. There are two basic categories of quercus (cork comes from oaks in Spain so the genus for oak sounds like cork). There are the white and the red. This is in the red group, I believe. The white ones have less tanic acid in the acorns and include the California Live Oak. They are more edible and are evergreen. A deciduous oak in southern California is generally called a Black Oak.
