Piano Spotted Atop Topanga Lookout In Santa Monica Mountains

LOS ANGELES ( — Turns out the hills of Los Angeles are alive with the sound of music - sort of.

A flyover of the Santa Monica Mountains late Thursday morning showed what appeared to be an unattended piano sitting atop a graffiti-covered concrete slab located at the Topanga Lookout off of Stunt Road.

The cement block sits at the site of an old fire tower and features a picturesque view of Calabasas Peak - and a bizarre location for a musical instrument that weighs at least 300 to 400 pounds.

It wasn't immediately clear how a piano would have been transported up the roughly two-mile hike to Topanga Lookout.

If you want to check out the sight for yourself, it won't cost you much: no fee or permit is required to make the hike, according to Hikespeak.
