Description

Large oak tree with gray trunk. Leaves are oval with smooth margins and a dusty-looking hairy surface. Dried catkins are still hanging from the tree.

New acorns are starting to form. I saw a few old, decaying acorns on the tree (unfortunately the photo is out of focus). The mature acorns are egg-shaped. The cap is thin and deep.

I'm thinking this might be a canyon live oak, but I'm not sure.

Description from Wikipedia

The family Fagaceae includes beeches and oaks, and comprises about 600 species of both evergreen and deciduous trees and shrubs, which are characterized by alternate simple leaves with pinnate venation, unisexual flowers in the form of catkins, and fruit in the form of cup-like (cupule) nuts.
