Table Mountain is perhaps Oroville California's best kept secret (aside from Burma Falls).
During the winter waterfalls flow from the edges of Table Mountain to the floor of the valley. If you are lucky and know a local then you might even find The Fantom Falls, I only know a few that have.
My favorite time on Table Mountain is the Spring. The wild flowers are in full bloom. The pinks, purples and yellows scattered among the dark rocks and fresh green grass looks as if a giant spilled his paint box on the landscape.
Happy California cows and horses are grazing in the fields.
On the horizon The Sutter Butte Mountain Range is as clear as if it had been carved out of the skyline.
The sound of joyful laughter fills the air from the children giggling as their kites fly high in the sky, while their parents watch and take part in their excitement, leaving their cell phones unattended.
The bark of the trees appears black against the blue sky and the contrast of the bright green leaves sprouting from their dark branches is very an lovely sight.
And then there is me. Absorbing it all, while my trigger finger grows tired on the shutter button of my camera. The beauty here is more than I can describe. I have an immense emotional connection to this place.
