Smoking cliffs off Hope Ranch on Monday.
its a shale oil fire, in the ground. been going on for years.
Is our "no smoking in public places" law being broken? ; - )
I could smell this, driving along Las Palmas on Tuesday.
Your first photo clearly shows what appears to be the arc of an imminent slope failure, curving up and around the fumarole. Very cool photos.
