Far below the twists and turns of Highway 154, the Pacific shimmered like a mirror in the sunset. "Goodbye, ocean," called my 8-year-old daughter, Kyla, when the water slipped from view. I too felt wistful at the thought of cool sea breezes as we drove away from the coast last month and toward Rancho Oso, a guest ranch in the golden hills northwest of Santa Barbara. Inland temperatures were expected to soar to 100. But we soldiered on, following signs to the ranch's check-in gate.

Firefighters battled a wildfire that briefly threatened a resort in Los Padres National Forest on Monday, authorities said. The Oso II fire blackened 60 to 75 acres of brush about six miles north of Santa Barbara, said Kathy Good of the U.S. Forest Service. The cause of the blaze is unknown and fire officials were uncertain when it might be contained. The fire began in Rancho Oso, a private resort, and briefly threatened trailers, barns and other structures on the property.

RACHAEL RAY is really cooking these days. As the Food Channel's breakout star, she has a smorgasbord of shows such as "$40 a Day," "30 Minute Meals" and "Tasty Travels"; a new cookbook, "Express Lane," due in the spring; and a magazine, Every Day With Rachael Ray, which marked its second issue this week. But the piece de resistance may be a syndicated talk show coming in September that will take her out of the kitchen and onto a sofa. Ray, a 37-year-old Lake Luzerne, N.Y.

The reawakened Zaca fire northwest of Santa Barbara burned southeast Friday, prompting the mandatory evacuation of several neighborhoods and recreational sites. An evacuation warning issued about 2 p.m. by fire officials was replaced by an evacuation order two hours later as the 20-mile-long, 38,400-acre fire flared in the Los Padres National Forest. U.S. Forest Service spokesman Mike Ferris estimated that 500 to 800 people had evacuated or begun doing so.

California Highway 154's winding, hilly route from Santa Barbara to the Santa Ynez wine country is one of my favorite Southern California drives. Each curve brings a new wonder: sprawling forests, idyllic pastures, foothills carpeted with gold and purple wildflowers. Horses and cows graze on ranches seemingly unfazed by time, hawks and bald eagles soaring overhead. And 20 miles from the city, a shimmering blue lake appears out of nowhere, peeking through thick stands of trees.

Pete Recchio was just completing the funding and incorporation of his new recreational vehicle company last year when the terrorist attacks hit New York and Washington, bringing car sales and leisure travel to a screeching halt. Shaken personally by the tragedy, he also was alarmed that his fledgling business would be stillborn, opening at a time when Americans were shunning big-ticket purchases, such as motor homes and trailers, and shying away from traveling for pleasure.

Skyline to the Sea Trail, as its name suggests, drops from the crest of the Santa Cruz Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. For the most part, it runs downhill on its scenic 35-mile journey from Castle Rock State Park to Big Basin Redwoods State Park to Waddell Beach. Views from the Skyline--redwood-forested slopes, fern-smothered canyons and the great blue Pacific--are superb. This gem of a trail has many friends.

Art, no matter who is behind it, reveals the motives and the state of mind of the artist. When we know that the artists are of a particular ilk--especially when they're outside normal art channels and traditions--it influences and broadens our way of seeing. It's no accident that art-watchers have become increasingly drawn to folk art or other "outsider" art.
