Oaks and Wires

Paso Robles translates in English to Pass of the Oaks. It is very hard to go anywhere in Paso Robles without seeing an oak tree nearby. Unfortunately, almost everywhere in the city limits you see trees, you also see wires ruining the view of the sky and the trees.

This was the case today. I had stopped at Uptown Hair
Studio to make an appointment for a haircut and I had parked in the lot behind the building. As I walked to my car I noticed six oak trees in what might have once been an oak forest. The alley divided them. The wires wove in and out among their tops. The photo above shows almost all the trees together. The photo below gives you a different view of the alley's right side.


I love always having an oak tree in view. I'm not so excited about the wires. You can click the photos to make them bigger.
