  • Fire Brings Us Closer Together [LAist] - "It was an interesting night in Los Angeles. A community generally lost to each other in the confines of Bluetooth headsets and commuter traffic united in a somewhat macabre spectacle: watching Griffith Park burn." [LAist]
  • LA City Council President Eric Garcetti [CD13] - "Griffith Park is not lost, of course, but it is damaged. We'll rebuild it, where we can, and it will grow back lush and green. It's the single largest urban park in the country; few other parks compare to it in its size and wildness."

Great shots man.

We could see the fire so clearly from Glassell Park, especially when they managed to control it somewhat and get the fire into a big wobbly line. I kept thinking about how the very last time I was hiking up there where it has really burned, I was miserable and hot and bored and wanted to go sit indoors and now I feel bad for my attitude that day.
