This is the area I describe in my Sept. 6, 2007 "Hot Spells" entry.
This view is looking directly from the parking area by the railroad tracks towards the beach. The rock marks the spot where the small stream flows into the Pacific. As I described, the fire crossed route 101 (north of Santa Barbara), and the railroad tracks and moved through this small valley to the beach. It also burned up to the bluffs on the right of the photo. You can also see one of the paths to the beach at the right.
