Got up early this morning and drove south to Esalen. There were some spot fires along the way but mostly pretty tame. Hot Springs Canyon is still smoldering. Here’s a photo taken this morning looking into Hot Springs Canyon.
At Esalen the stage was still set up on the grass for the 4th of July celebration that didn’t happen. Burns Creek still has some smoldering action going too. Now keep your fingers crossed for our friends on the eastern side of this fire who are really in the thick of it about now.
Fernwood has a bluegrass band from Santa Cruz tonight – Harmony Grits. Come on out.
