The Silverwood Lake area in the San Bernardino Mountains is a place where destruction is often followed by renewal. For decades, the area was home to the small town of Cedar Springs, founded by homesteaders before World War I. But most of the town was flooded in 1972 when the California State Water Project built a dam there.

I got on the water at Irvine Lake last week just before the storm hit. The west shore was lined with fishermen, the air was full of birds. An osprey swooped down on the rippling surface and flew off into the gloomy sky clutching a silvery trout, with other ospreys in frenzied pursuit. It was indeed prime time for a little fishing, for man and bird of prey, as activity within the waterways always seems to perk up in the hours leading to a storm.

Caltrans has opened two northbound lanes of Interstate 15 through the Cajon Pass as fire crews battled two blazes along the well-traveled highway. Lanes have remained opened on the southbound side, but traffic in both directions is jammed. Kevin Forrester, superintendent of the Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area in the San Bernardino Mountains, said the fires are at least five miles away but he decided to evacuate campers. “We see smoke, so we're just trying to do it as a precaution," Forrester said.

IT seemed like a scene one would encounter only in wilderness hundreds of miles from the nearest human: a bald eagle soaring above jagged bluffs, riding thermals with barely a flap of her outstretched wings, the bluest sky and cotton-ball clouds as a backdrop. But the location was just a couple of hours' drive northeast of L.A. -- Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area.

Hikers shuck their routine -- and their given names -- beginning this month to tackle the 2,650-mile trek between Mexico and Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail. Most will travel south to north for 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 months if they go all the way. Some will adopt trail names like Soupbean, Blaze, Memory Lapse, Molasses and French Fry and Yucca (a couple).

Three wildfires burned across dry vegetation Monday in the Inland Empire, forcing mandatory evacuations near Perris and snarling traffic on heavily traveled Interstate 15 in the Cajon Pass. In Riverside County, welders are believed to have sparked a blaze that had burned 100 acres of light-and-medium vegetation by late Monday and prompted about 50 homes to be evacuated in the unincorporated community of Good Hope northwest of Perris, fire officials said. In San Bernardino County, two blazes caused officials to shut down most lanes of Interstate 15, an artery that links Las Vegas and the high desert.

A trip to a shopping mall, the beach or a city park hardly qualify as a vacation, but the options for low-income families that want to spend time together are limited. And for those who live in areas with drug, gang or crime activity, neutral recreational turf can be hard to find. Fam Camp, a program developed by the California Park Service, introduces these families to the peaceable possibilities and inexpensive realities of state parks.

Los Angeles and much of Southern California began drying out Sunday, having weathered what meteorologists called the last in a record-breaking series of storms that killed at least seven people and put emergency services to a harrowing test. While a few scattered mudslides continued to cause detours, law enforcement officials around the region reported that most roads, while soggy, were cleared.
