This is my favorite oak tree in Amador County. It sits on a hill behind Lake Tabeau and overlooks the Mokelumne River Canyon. Recently, the Butte Fire devastated the area and burned the majestic oak, as it swept through the canyon and into Calaveras county.
This gallery is all about this amazing tree, photographed over the years, in various seasons and from various angles. The most recent being in the burned state. She will recover and will continue to stand as a beacon over the canyon for years to come.
