TOPANGA, Calif., March 27 (UPI) -- A musical mystery is unfolding in California's Santa Monica Mountains as a piano appeared without explanation at a lookout point 2 miles from the nearest road.

Hikers and news helicopters captured images and video Thursday showing the piano, estimated to weigh at least 300 to 400 pounds, that was apparently placed late Wednesday or early Thursday at the Topanga Lookout, which is accessible by a 2-mile hike from the nearest road.


The piano was placed on the site of an old fire tower, which famously also once hosted a couch of similarly mysterious origins.
