Chaparral Snow
Saturday, March 11, 2006

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 Sunflower.
