Tallest Oak in California
This is the tallest oak in California. Its status is recognized by the state and although it is on private property it has state protection. It is actually adjacent to the largest oak in the state. The trees are located beneath the west face of Cobb Mountain. Note the boneyard for the steam field at Bottle Rock Powerplant in the lower left. The slopes of Cobb Mountain are visible beyond the boneyard.

The boneyard is where old pieces of drilling rigs, filters, slot liners etc. are stored until they are cleaned up and disposed of. Not very interesting unless you are into geothermal power or drilling.

I can't remember how tall that tree is. I hadn't spent much time in Lake County until a few weeks ago and I am a bit rusty on some of the details. I'll have to ask my dad. The property used to be his.
