patchesthru I thought I knew what oak trees were, but then I hiked the PCT and I wasn't so sure... This is an oak tree, right? What kind of oak is it?

  •   patchesthru The trunk looks like an oak to me, but the leaves look like holly! Maybe @soletosoil can help with the ID... 2d
  •   patchesthru On the east coast I know what oak trees look like :-P 2d
  •   alextomsawyer Maybe @thehikeguy knows? 2d
  •   astroterr I believe it is a Scrub Oak 2d
  •   brassyturtle Could be either a canyon live oak or a coast live oak -- they tend to grow in the same area and look a lot alike. I'm no tree expert, though. 2d
  •   brassyturtle If I had to bet on it, though... I'd go with Coast Live Oak. They definitely grow in that area and their leaves look like holly. 2d
  •   npersac Coming from Louisiana, seeing these oaks made me feel a bit more at home there. 2d
  •   thehikeguy I'm with @brassyturtle on this one. 1d

patchesthru You never know what you will find if you take a minute to explore a little! This rock formation is less than 100 ft from the PCT! Any guesses about what it's called?
