June 2003 Fire,  addendum
Here's a picture taken on August 16th, about three weeks after the summer rains arrived.  Most
of the black ash has been washed away and the hillside has turned a vibrant green.  All of the
foreground and the right hand portion of the hill in the background had all been burned.

Pretty amazing recovery, although you can still see the effect of the fire on the lower branches of
the trees and the yuccas will b
e gone until new ones replace them..
