Santa Barbara Burns Again

Fire season has come early to California this year, and you may have seen news coverage of another destructive fire in the Santa Barbara area. We are currently in Orange County for our daughter's wedding, and have seen the big plumes of smoke that have blown out over the ocean. A number of our friends in the area have been evacuated from their homes, and we are all hoping everyone gets through intact.

This fire is doubly sad for me, as it (now officially named the Jesusita Fire) began in an area of San Roque Canyon that was my favorite place to hike. About three years ago, I posted on hiking with my dogs on the Jesusita Trail.
