Sherpa Northside

Here are a few more pix of the Sherpa (aka Scherpa, etc.) Fire burn area, along the North side. I’ve sent more and different pix to Edhat, that you can find using the “John On Edhat” link in the right column here. The first pic is looking along the ridge toward the East.

At the Northwest corner of the burned area is reportedly where the fire started, to the left of the swimming pool at the base of the hill. In this next pic, that area is far in the distance toward the Northwest below the low point in the ridge. You can see that they painted multiple lines of PhosCheck as the fire progressed. Higher up was probably both a secondary defense and extra protection for the ridge where there’s expensive telecomm equipment. They’d also want to prevent the fire cresting the ridge and moving down into the valley beyond.

Last is this view from near the Northeast edge, looking toward the South, looking down El Capitan and Las Flores Canyons to the beaches far into the distance.
