Rain clouds clear as a horse and rider crest a charred hillside at Rancho Sierra Vista in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The Springs fire raged out of control on the heels of one of the driest winters in the 135 years since rain records have been kept for Southern California. Strong Santa Ana winds that are unusual for this time of the year pushed the flames forward.
