How appropriate for the end of a long week. I noticed this as I was driving home from an appointment today.
Clearly there was a recent brush fire that went through here. I pulled off the road to capture the aftermath. There is a residence less than 100 yards from where I am standing. It’s amazing how well the fire departments control fires and protect homes.
It serves as a warning that fire season is upon us. To see this same area in better times, view my Day 54 shot here.
I worked down in San Diego today so took the opportunity to swing by La Jolla Cove. The place is so beautiful, I just wish I had more time there. I only had enough time to snap a few and then get back to work.
This is the view from 10,000 feet above sea level at the top of the Haleakala Volcano.
The clouds you see are sitting at about 6,000 feet. I heard that this is the steepest road in the US. You go from sea level to 10,000 feet in about 20 miles.
It is really breathtaking to be so high at the rim of a volcano. Otherworldly.
