Images from the Angeles Crest

These photographs were taken by Susan McAlister as we drove back up from a grocery run to La Canada on Sunday afternoon, 6 Sep 2009. We estimate that about 85% of the forest that one can see from the highway has been destroyed. There are reassuring stands here and there where fire fickleness spared chaparral and trees, but the rest has been decimated.

The photos speak for themselves, so I'm not adding captions.
