Blue & Green 2012

Our Annual Ode to the Great Outdoors

View from the top of Chief Peak

Every year before summer, The Santa Barbara Independent celebrates the blue of the waters and green of the lands that surround Santa Barbara. For 2012, we check out the Los Padres backcountry, practice some beach-going, interview a hiking author and wildlife tracker, and much more.
