Hootenany 2004 : The Award for Best Tree…

…goes to the Oak Tree that is just left of the Main Stage area, if you are facing the stage and watching the bands.
This particular grand, old california canyon oak, at Oak Canyon Ranch adjacent to Irvine Lake, stretches our over 100 feet in every direction and provided shade for over 300 people most of the day on Saturday. At past Hootenannies, many of my friends spent most of the day parked on blankets or towels under this tree. Long may it live!
