Explore: Griffith Park

My friend, Hale, and I headed up to Griffith Park Sunday evening for a night hike.  We met at the bear statue at the corner of Los Feliz and Fern Dell.

I believe the handiwork above is the work of the Knotty Girls?

I just liked the bark on this tree, it looks like most of it had been removed in some way and all that was left was this patch of bark that looks like a topographical model.

We hiked up to the observatory and made sure to check the view periodically along the way up.  I love pink and purple sunsets, so painterly.

Then we followed the ridge line up to the top of Mt. Hollywood.

You could see to the water, downtown, Burbank, Glendale and many more places.  It gets a bit cold at night, but it was a beautiful hike and a nice workout.

And since Griffith Park is surrounded by urban areas, we walked a few blocks over to Thai Town for some noodles to warm us up.
