Do you see it? (No, not the dumpster on the right. Look harder.)
We hiked Mt. Hollywood yesterday! Which is actually the mountain next to the one with the hollywood sign, so you get a lot of good views of the sign. It was a fun, and pretty easy hike. It was only about 1.5 miles to the top, and the trail was totally even and wide the whole way. It is definitely a tourist attraction.
This is about half way to the top, and there were a lot of people that only walked this far, in non-hiking clothes, because this is the best view of the sign. There were a lot of views much better than of the sign.
The mountains were beautiful, and you could see all of Los Angeles from the top!
(And all of the smog, haha)
Glenn carried Violet on his back all the way up. I didn't fully appreciate that until I wore her in the carrier going down, and we got on the wrong trail, and had to hike back up the hill a very short way. It was HARD going uphill with her added weight! Also, Violet got tired of being in the carrier, so Glenn carried her in his arms for about half of the way down. He is a champ.
At the top of the mountain, Violet expressed interest in drinking from our water bottle, so we gave it a try! She loved it! Although most of the water, if not all of it, ended up on the front of her shirt.
