Video: Lonely Piano Sits Atop The Santa Monica Mountains
Fox 11's news chopper spotted this lonely piano sitting atop the Santa Monica Mountains on Thursday morning, leaving us in awe of the wonder and the beauty of it all.
The instrument was seen on top of the Topanga Lookout, just off of Stunt Road in Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. Hikespeak says it's a 2-mile round-trip hike with a little bit of an elevation gain, so we'd imagine hauling a piano to that spot is no small task. Photos show a couch once occupied the same spot on the concrete foundation of what used to be a lookout tower.
