View of the after-effects of the Red Rock Cold Creek Canyon forest fire in the Santa Monica Mountains, showing charred skeletons of fire-swept chaparral that was once a jungle of buckthorn, greasewood, lilac, red shank, etc. more than 50 feet high. It will take more than ten years for this denuded watershed to recover its former elfin-forest. Three months after the fire tender new shoots of buckthorn have been to grow, as seen in the lower left corner of the photo. Photo dated: January 21, 1937.
