A fire is burning beautiful Griffith Park, that miraculous wild place in the middle of Los Angeles -- a place I love and where I often run.
I know, I know -- the grasses and trees will grow back, all will be fine in time -- but at this moment, when I see the photos of my beautiful trail-running home in ashes, it just breaks my heart.
The LA Times website has been posting frequent updates and photos, such as those I've re-posted here.
A big thank-you to the firefighters who are doing all they can to put out the fire.
See you on the trail -- once the flames die down!
