Oak Tree, Sky View

A different oak tree than yesterday's photo.  This one is more of a West Coast Oak, like the Valley Oaks in California.  It's a much larger tree, rounder in shape, with smaller, rounder leaves that fall off before winter.  Although it looks like there are a few holding on still.   At the WSU campus entrance there is a big sign behind a fabulous oak tree.  Around the perimeter of the campus and Mt. Vista area there are many other "lesser" versions of this tree, which I like the imagine is the original parent. No leaf prints on the sidewalk under today's tree.  My guess is that the leaves fall before the rainy season and don't get their print washed into the cement.  (Maybe?)
