Man, was just riding up there last Sunday.

If I were as this same spot this morning, I’d be in flames.


All this dry brush is now black soot.


This tree is now gone;




I don’t want to post more pictures, right now I’m looking out the windows at a lot of flames on top of the hills and a hella lot ‘o smoke…

I know his trails aren't :angry: On the plus side, this might stall the rampant development of the foothills for a while:devil:

Unlikely. People will just demand more heinous fire suppression which in turn will lead to bigger fires less frequently. :rolleyes:

So Cal
Somewhere high in the desert near a curtain of a blue
St. Anne's skirts are billowing
But down here in the city of the lime lights
The fans of santa ana are withering
And you can?t deny that living is easy
If you never look behind the scenery
It's showtime for dry climes
And bedlam is dreaming of rain

When the hills of los angeles are burning
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives are on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And los angeles is burning

This is not a test
Of the emergency broadcast system
Where malibu fires and radio towers
Conspire to dance again
And I cannot believe the media Mecca
They're only trying to peddle reality,
Catch it on prime time, story at nine
The whole world is going insane

When the hills of los angeles are burning
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives are on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And los angeles is burning

A placard reads
"the end of days"
Jacaranda boughs are bending in the haze

More a question than a curse
How could hell be any worse?

The flames are stunning
The cameras running
So take warning

When the hills of los angeles are burnin
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives are on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And los angeles is burning

I haven't tried to make my way around the area, although it's pretty safe to say that all 3 of our local shuttle spots have burned. I'm a few blocks east of the fire, so I'm out of harm's way. However, one of my friends is on a mandatory evacuation and another was given a voluntary evacuation this afternoon.

When I woke up yesterday morning to wind, heat, and a small brush fire in the hills at the end of my street, I had a bad feeling that it was going to get a lot worse.

This morning when I was leaving Camarillo towards Moorpark, you could see the glow of the flames over the top of the mountains. Going over the Santa Susana pass there was fire everywhere.....

On my way home (when it was light out) everything was burnt.....and if the trails that you are talking about are the ones that I'm thinking of.....they have to be toast. Looks like my favorite trail didn't get burned though (luckily).
