I went to California and back, but I was there for a business conference, and didn’t have much time to take photos. So, here’s a whopping one from the flight and one from the ground.
I’m no Charles Kuralt, but I’m fairly well traveled at this point, and I feel like I have some decent advice to give people in terms of sightseeing. One thing I’ve said for a while is that it’s a good idea to turn around and look the other direction from a famous landmark, as often times there’s lots of interesting things the other way as well. In the case of the Hollywood Sign, it took a couple mile walk up a mountain road to do that, but hey, sometimes that’s what it takes. Although I’m not generally a fan of Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles, I really did enjoy the view, and I liked seeing the area from a perspective that a lot of people don’t see.
