If you stand at Devils Canyon Overlook (just below Charlton Flat on Angeles Crest Highway) on a warm spring day, a withering updraft fans your face like the hot breath of a furnace. There’s no hint of the clear, cascading stream and the cool, shady microenvironment hidden in the deep crease of the canyon 2000 feet below.
