Stripped ridge line outside of the town of Big Sur.

Standing on Highway One, I took a shot of the burnt hills outside of Big Sur.

We drove south to Big Sur (the town) yesterday for the first time since the devastating man-triggered forest fire that killed wildlife and stripped the hills and valleys of vegetation last July. Highway One remains closed a short distance after Big Sur. Businesses in the town are open, but the economy has been hit hard by the loss of traffic from the Los Angeles area.
