Flying into SBA Wednesday, we discovered there are some surprises in store for anyone who hasn't done so recently. For example, somehow we didn't know how close the fire came to La Conchita and how exposed that slope is in event of heavy rain. Next the Summerland "cliff dwellers" have changed since the fire burned one, one is gone, the "wine cellar" one looks active still, trash is piled at the beach, and there's a new tarp town below the tracks. Last in this batch is a look at Tangerine Falls in a scorched watershed.
