Brother Nicholas Radelmiller examines the burned remains of Mt. Calvary Monastery on Thursday. The monastery, established in 1947, was destroyed Nov. 13 when the Tea fire swept through, driven by 70 mph winds. The retreat sits on a ridge 1,250 feet above Santa Barbara, with a view of the Santa Barbara coastline and the Channel Islands.
