The recent La Mision fire exposed some archaeological stuff


The coastal arroyo's with the archaeological site the students exposed @ Bajamar has had all the dense Sumac around it burned away in the recent fire. I'm hearing the fire exposed yet another village site in the arroyo. :D
Last big burn for us was 1974 and 2006 . Starting over yet again, it burned worse than the past:(

Interesting. Headed down there in December. How far from the highway is this site? Might be worth checking it out, and see the damage from the fire.
