The Big Sur community gathered in an outdoor amphitheater on Wednesday night. They sat surrounded by towering trees at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. The beautiful scenery stood in stark contrast to the destruction of the fire not so far away.
The high ridges and steep mountainsides are part of what make Big Sur beautiful. The long and winding roads that lead to isolated areas are why many people choose to live here. All of it also makes fighting the Soberanes Fire difficult.
