After our photographic morning stroll through the woodland of Los Osos Oaks State Natural Reserve, we drove to Montaña de Oro State Park to hike Valencia Peak.
The third and last post from Los Osos Oaks State Natural Reserve combines the beautiful oaks with the other visually quite attractive element that I already mentioned in part two: Poison-oak!
I’m continuing with photographs from our Central Coast trip at the end of August today. After our Pecho Coast hike on the Point Buchon Trail we had a late lunch and rested for a bit before we went to the Los Osos Oaks State Natural Reserve. This is an ancient oak forest with gnarled trees up to 800 years old, and you haven’t really seen California’s Coast Live Oaks until you’ve seen these. They’re absolutely astonishing!
