Afternoon hike to the overlook. It was cool and foggy at the trailhead, but once at the East Topanga Fire Road the trail was above the marine layer and hot and sunny. This time I took a couple of the side-trails that parallel the fire road to make it feel more like hiking on a trail and less like walking on a road. At the top of the first plateau someone had made two circles of twigs, leaves and even a dead lizard. I left it undisturbed in case it was some sort of offering to some demonic being. From the overlook the coast and ocean were all hidden under the marine layer. On the way back I stopped to rest and saw smoke from a brush fire to the North. As I continued down there was more and smoke. Getting back to a TV I saw local news covering brush fires in Calabassas.
