Tierra del Sol burns

Expect more heat and fires in the Land of the Sun with drought and global warming. Hopefully more small fires without high winds to reduce the risk of a large catastrophic fire. Pretty wildflowers afterwards which is part of the natural fire cycle in our native chaparral and oak woodlands.
