|Cuyama Peak Fire Lookout. The LO cabin collapsed last winter.|
I had spent the day up in Santa Barbara and Alamo Canyons exploring and was wrapping the day up when it occurred to me that I didn't have to head straight home, and that a low cloud ceiling which hung over the region promised a dramatic sunset light show. To that end I drove up Dry Canyon to the summit of Cuyama Peak. Things could not have been timed more beautifully. Enjoy the photos (click any to enlarge), and up next will be a discussion of what I had uncovered earlier in the day.
