Pen in Hand: The Oak Creek Grove: hardy giants living where they're not supposed to grow.

There is an exclusive club located on the edge of the Mojave Desert. Only a small group of oldtimers belong, and they persist against daunting odds. As the years go by, they still stand strong and survive, despite wind, drought and long hot summers.

This unique enclave is a grove of Valley Oaks (Quercus lobata), and they occur in the most arid, desert conditions of any Valley Oaks in the world: about 7 miles southeast of Tehachapi, at the intersection of Tehachapi-Willow Springs Road and Oak Creek Road.
