The Basin Complex Fire started in June 2008, and hit Tassajara in July. The main Tassajara complex was saved by the heroic action of 5 people who stayed behind and fought the fire: <http://www.sfzc.org/tassajara/display.asp?catid=4&pageid=1237>. The surrounding hillsides were completely burned. I attended the Tassajara summer session the next spring, in May 2009. Over 2 days, plus the incoming drive, I took a series of photographs of the recovery of the ecosystem after the fire. Here is the record. (I apologize for the large number of images -- I am unable to easily cut more. I also apologize for the lack of captions. Please email me with IDs, suggested captions, and comments.)
