While we're partial to the number three (being triplets, and all...) we know how the saying of nature goes, "Leaves of three, leave them be." Poison oak is everywhere in California, and it comes in clusters of three and during the summer months has a glossy finish with lobed edges (as seen in photograph above). They are often in bushels and it can be easy to rub into them when you're hiking and not really paying attention. 

I had to keep reminding Lisa to dodge them, and kept picturing her inflated in a bath of oatmeal covered in itchy rashes. I'm just glad nobody got it :) BUT, it's something to be aware of if you are like us and spend a lot of time outdoors.
