This morning, at about 2000
ft. in the Simi Hills, periodic snow showers added
a white accent to the black, brown, and greens of a
landscape in the process of recovering from the Topanga
Fire. The snow was wet, and not much was accumulating, but
it was SNOW in March within a mile or two of the Simi and
San Fernando Valleys.
Over on the Chumash
Trail at about 2200 ft., the coverage was a little better,
and a couple hundred feet in elevation higher, near the
trail's junction with Rocky Peak road, the scene
was virtually alpine. The snow highlighted the blackened
fingers of chaparral burned in the 2003 Simi Fire, and
chilled the smile of this Canyon
Chumash Trail at about 2200 ft.
