A new exhibit opened at the Petersen Automotive Museum last weekend that features American convertibles. Called Going Topless In Style: The American Convertible, it will run through Oct. 7. Southern Californians have always considered convertibles the ideal vehicles for the area's mild climate and vast network of scenic roads. Going Topless in Style will celebrate our fascination with convertibles by presenting a wide variety of domestically produced ragtops that illustrate the development of the body type from the first versions built during the early twentieth century to modern times.

Hikers along the Owl Trail in Cherry Canyon usually enjoy the shaded tranquillity of the ravine before emerging into the open chaparral of the trails above.

A rock formation just off the trail was tagged with a graffito reading “Prom?” Hiker Anne Karayan took a picture of the scene and hopes to discourage people from defacing the trail again. “Every morning I walk along the trail with my dog. It's beautiful under the oaks, an escape from the city into a natural paradise.
