Battlefield against Nature's Forces

Sparse, low-lying, wind-torn vegitation shortly below the summit of Mount Baldy holds its ground against sometimes fierce winds on the highpoint of the San Gabriel Mountains. June 15, 2008

Those winds are

very important in bringing moisture
from the ocean to the Sierra
Nevada and beyond to the Great
Basin of Utah. They can also be
a 'curse' to firefighters trying
to extinquish blazes. A blessing
and a curse upon the land, so to
speak! Excellent photo, Guido!!!
