While some burnt areas are still rather scraggly, other are now looking pretty good.  Here, where there was once open ground, there's now a robust cover of chamise, yerba santa, pitcher sage, toyon, and ceanothus (although I see none of the latter in this photo).  The usual road view is right around the corner, but because it was almost dead into the sun, that shot wasn't workable today.
