Los Angeles Mortal Coil list 1

After eight-and-a-half years of living in Los Angeles I can now finally say that I've hiked up to the iconic Hollywood Sign, or at least as close as one can legally get. Kevin, Alicia and I did an early Sunday morning hike up from Bronson Canyon to the sign.

Alicia said it was labeled "strenuous" but we all felt that it should have been labeled "moderate." It begins with a good 15-20 minutes of a steep enough ascent to get a good workout, then it levels off for a leisurely 30ish minutes before a final ascent up to the top of the mountain. Great views, though sadly you see the sign from the rear.

That's obviosly the "Holly" and in the upper right you can see the reservoir.

A gorgeous shot of the snow capped mountains. It was a perfect California day—warm enough to go out without a jacket, sunny enough for sunglasses and gorgeously brilliant white snow on the mountains.

In the upper middle of this photo you can sorta make out the seats of the Hollywood Bowl.

Here's a link to the short photo album.
