The fire in the Santa Cruz mountains breaks my heart, the "playground" of my childhood.    Redwoods, streams in ferned canyons.    That incredible smell of a redwood forest.   Homes gone, no lives so far.

I saw that Big Basin Redwoods State Park suffered a fair amount of damage.  Always loved going up there - and some of "up there' is pretty weird backwoods type shit.

It’s California.   Ya don’t appreciate it, stay East.

eta, the only time I’ve really felt “out of my element” was when as navigator I put us 20km off course in France Profund , in a backwoods lumber camp where all the guys who approached our car looked like carbon copies.   We speak bad French, but they spoke something completely different.    Yeh, the SC mountains have always been a place to retreat to, to do your thing.    But essentially harmless.

My cousin's husband, who's been battling renal cancer for several years, finally has to go into hospice.  Even if things were normal and we were going out East for Thanksgiving, I'm not sure he'll be around for that long, but now I definitely can't say goodbye to him in person.
