Panoramic view from Strawberry Peak, San Gabriel Mountains north of Los Angeles, California. These mountains have popped up out of the ocean rapidly - uplifted in only a few million years by motion on the nearby San Andreas Fault. In 2009 this area was almost totally burned by the Station Fire, so this is about the current state of recovery.
