Impressions from the area along the Lusardi Loop Trail that was burned in May by the Bernardo Fire. When I drove by I noticed that some fresh green had popped up here and there — perhaps thanks to the water that had been dropped to kill the flames, some Laurel Sumac and scrub oaks were able to resprout immediately. There was no rain that would have helped. The burned areas itself looked like a devastated wasteland or alien planet. I was curious and wanted to see if I can find some beauty and photos in there.
It will be interesting to see what happens to the area next spring. I’m hoping for an abundance of wildflowers if we get good winter rains. We’ll see.
