Passing the entrance sometime after 3 a.m., I saw some trucks entering the dump. I was too tired to notice the time. As I approached the town, the smell went away. It was on a west wind, and I was now upwind of the dump. I continued all the way around to Hasley Canyon, then Commerce Center Drive and turned toward the Castaic Union School District office. The smell was stronger, the closer I got to the dump.
