Flying home to SBA Friday evening, we saw at least two different layers of smoke over Montecito Peak. The layers don't show well in this pic since it's shot toward the settling sun, but I like the "cardboard cutout" effect of the hills. Anyway, we wondered where the fire(s) might be. Maybe a small fire nearby causing the layer from near the ground up to 3,000' or so? Was the high layer above and beyond Broadcast Peak coming from the fires up in the Sierra? After we landed the smoke didn't look as thick from the ground, so maybe it was all just smog blown in from LA?

Reminds me of the Great Smoky Mountains which aren't really smoke either.

Not discounting what you saw from the air, but while driving into goleta an hour ago the marine layer came in hard and made it look very hazy, especially in the sunset.

Any news on the latest Gaviota Fire mentioned on the CHP site a little while ago?
