I took this picture in February, when I went back to visit my parents. If you went to this spot now, you would see absolutely no green.
Last week, the Jesusita fire blazed down on Santa Barbara, destroying over 75 houses and leaving the Santa Barbara front country charred and smoking.
Trails? Um, not so much. RD Luis Escobar posted this about 9 Trails-- it will be a while until Santa Barbara recovers.
Even worse? This is the BEGINNING of fire season, and we don't exactly have a wet summer predicted...
