Oaks and Manzanita on Muir Mill Road

Oaks and manzanitas served as food sources for the local Pomo tribes for thousands of years. These might be black oaks, but I can't be certain. One of my favorite things about the manzanita bush is the nearly wine-red, glossy skin of its branches.

That really sounds neat--the red branches.

Nice overall photo.

Have a nice holiday weekend.

Thanks for visiting Abe! I'll try to get a good shot of the bark sometime, to post here.
