So today while I was taking pictures around the San Marcos Foothills, I noticed what looked like a SWAT team truck and a large amount of squad cars. I had already heard some sharp popping noises when I was on the other side of the hill. I walked around some trees and started taking pictures.
What I saw at first:
Then some movement:
And a lot of shouting orders of coming out, dropping a weapon, walking and laying down:
And they moved in... with blue guns:
And had a chit chat about how they all did. Turned out to be a drill. Very cool to watch though. Our guys know what they're doing in Santa Barbara.
Would have been nice to see that coming in. No barriers or air support was a bit suspicious too.
Thank you for viewing!
