When the city of Goleta tells you to "meet at the chimney on Ellwood Mesa" for a beach cleanup day, do you know where to go?
If so, then you probably got the answer to yesterday's March Edness challenge right. The Ellwood chimney is located at the edge of Ellwood Mesa, at the widest path leading to beach access, and is a repository for rocks, shells, and other finds walkers make on the beach below. Directly below it on the beach is the remains of what used to be a public restroom and is how a makeshift easel for hyperlocal Goleta graffiti.
We'd love to hear from local historians who can tell us more about the chimney's origins and whose house it used to be part of. They sure had a sweet view.
Today, the Ellwood bluffs are preserved for posterity and the favorite spot for north Goleta walkers, runners, mountain bikers, horseback riders, model airplane flyers, dog walkers, and people wandering around looking for March Edness answers.
