Scene at observatory
The Griffith Observatory offered a view like no other in the wake of the fire.
To the north and east, hills yesterday covered with trees and brush had been transformed into a barren landscape. The eastern half of Mt. Hollywood burned, but the western side was still an olive green. The view down to the Roosevelt golf course offers another lesson. Tree along course that received irrigation remain strong and bright green. Trees closer to the hills were blackened.
