Got some work done recently on my car, and my mechanic cleared my computer. I tried to get it smogged the day I got it back and failed due to the OBD systems not being ready. I was given instructions on how to get all the systems prepped, so today I did it. I ran CA-23S, to US-101N, and back on the SR-126E, to Fillmore. From here, I went over Grimes Canyon, as it becomes 23S there. This route took me the opposite route of the incredibly devastating Thomas fire burned a few weeks ago. Looking north towards Ojai, the hillsides are still charred black, and I was able to see how browningly close the fire came to some houses.

And here’s a video of the same road, but going north towards Fillmore.
