Cajon Pass Trains

Burlington Northern Santa Fe

Cajon Pass (1 November 2016), 2 months after the massive Blue Cut Fire of August 2016. The holly-leaf cherry (Prunus ilicifolia) has already resprouted from a subterranean basal burl (lignotuber). The Blue Cut Fire burned more than 36,000 acres, including the Cajon Pass and Hwy 138 almost to the junction with Hwy 2 (where my mtn property is located).
