Second-Growth Oak Woodland Photo Study

Today while house-sitting a friend's home on a large acreage lot in the Adelaida area west of Paso Robles I took a walk with my dog and along the way captured these images in a second-growth oak woodland which features several species of oak as well as some rather large poison oak and manzanita bushes and trees . This silvan habitat was a century or so ago clear-cut to be used in the Klau-Buena Vista Mine complex several miles away. It has since come roaring back and is quite beautiful as one can see in the following images.
