I hike up on Lime Ridge Open space quite often. Lime Ridge is the foothills extension of Mt Diablo, which you can see in the far background. This wildlife area gives relief from the busy urban life that lies at it’s feet; it’s a place to rest your mind and take in the simplicity of nature, in every season.
I’ve been visiting this Oak tree for nearly 30 years. I wish I had a picture of it from when we first met…to me it has always looked just like this.
