The first miracle was the tree. A 3-foot-high sapling was all that stopped Glenn Mowbray's free fall down a sheer slope on New Year's Day. Mowbray spent hours with his heels dug in to the roots of the puny pine, staring down the boulder-strewn precipice that he knew would kill him if he lost his grip. "All the times I've laughed about being a tree-hugger, I take it all back," said Mowbray, 52. "This was a dress rehearsal for my death."

Ed FORNER is 8,000 feet above the vast, sunburned desert. Stomach-dropping mountain ranges unfurl outside the tiny plane's cockpit, each more spectacular than the last: Panamint, Inyo, Last Chance, Sierra. But the pilot's not really looking. Sometimes he can't see the wild landscape he's charged with protecting for the roadblocks that Washington keeps throwing in his way, he says. "All I see are stop signs!" he shouts over the engine's whine.

Steve HOEFT sways back and forth with exhaustion. Nine hours and 85 miles in the saddle. Fifteen miles to go. Victory. Right there. Except that Crockett Dumas, one of the cagiest endurance riders alive, is out there in the dark desert, closing in. Denny sags too. Shivers ripple across the stallion's sweat-drenched coat. But the chestnut's heartbeat is strong. "You feel pretty good about your horse?"

The California Air Resources Board on Thursday banned popular in-home ozone air purifiers, saying studies have found that they can worsen conditions such as asthma that marketers claim they help to prevent. The regulation, which the board said is the first of its kind in the nation, will require testing and certification of all types of air purifiers. Any that emit more than a tiny amount of ozone will have to be pulled from the California market.

HIDING within the concrete and stucco of our great megalopolis is a parallel universe -- a place where transit arteries are not clogged, passersby don't avert their eyes, billboards are ocean vistas and the hovering aircraft are hawks, not helicopters. You can find this refuge on the vast network of trails that crisscrosses the mountains and canyons of Southern California.

Curling up in front of a cozy wood fire on a nippy night will be banned in many parts of Southern California on bad air days under new regulations passed Friday by regional air regulators. Citing public health concerns in the heavily polluted Los Angeles Basin, the South Coast Air Quality Management District board voted unanimously to impose fines on homeowners who burn wood in fireplaces or at outdoor sites on high-pollution days during winter months -- about two dozen days in a typical year.

Hundreds of residents of this rural eastern Orange County community returned home late Friday and early Saturday after a mandatory evacuation was lifted at 8:30 p.m. Friday. The evacuation was called by county emergency personnel after higher than expected rainfall triggered small mudslides on steep, bare slopes above the canyon floor. The area was severely burned in October's Santiago fire.
