Night hike in Griffith Park.
#Hike #Stunningstructures Griffith Park has always been one of my favorite places to hike because of its numerous hiking routes; from easy to almost strenuous, and because of the unique views.
The night before this hike, I programmed my mind to make an early morning, photo shooting hike. I made sure my cameras' batteries were fully charged, set my hiking stick by the door, organized my hiking clothes and shoes; and prepared a turkey sandwich for the go. Although I have been to this place so many times; specifically this trail route, I felt like a child; filled with excitement just knowing that this time was going to be different. I was going to be out there not just hiking and breathing some fresh air, but I was going to play with my camera.
I made it to the park by five in the morning as intended, since I wanted to avoid the big crowds and the lack of a convenient parking space. And there I was, with my camera and all; anxious and excited to take on this hike as If I was going to a far, exotic place. I decided to take the short cut trail route to the location where this photo was taken from. Although steeper and narrower than the usual and less tiring route, I was able to manage with my load; camera backpack, hiking backpack, tripod, hiking stick, and umbrella for the sun. All this load and steep trail did not matter to me, I had a mission in mind; to simply experiment with the art and happiness of taking pictures. Upon arrival at this point of the hike, I noticed how special the observatory looked that morning and I just began taking pictures. While taking pictures, I realized I totally lost track of time, but it did not matter and I simply continued on with my adventure.
Indeed, this is a hiking day I will not easily forget .
#Hiking #Spring at #Hollywood #Crossroads of the World has been called America's first outdoor shopping mall. Located on Sunset Boulevard and Las Palmas in Los Angeles, the mall features a central building designed to resemble an ocean liner surrounded by a small village of cottage-style bungalows. It was designed by Robert V. Derrah and built in 1936. #LoveMyTown
Once a busy shopping center, the Crossroads now hosts private offices, primarily for the entertainment industry. It has been used for location shooting in many films, including L.A. Confidential and The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, in TV shows, including Dragnet and Remington Steele, and in commercials by McDonald's, Ford, and Mattel. A reproduction of Crossroads' iconic tower and spinning globe can be seen just inside the entrance to Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida.
Today, Crossroads is the creative home of a variety of music publishers and producers, television and film script writers, film and recording companies, novelists, costume designers, publicists, and casting agencies. This house looks a bit nicer in the show. ;) (There were a couple of cars parked on the property, so we didn't linger.) #Hiking at BatMansCave a very slippery place on winter ,and the earth is so loose ,watch up for falling rocks 👍🏼😒 #LA #Hollywood #OutDoors Here's a cool spot you have to check out if you're in LA, you won't be disappointed. Griffith Observatory is a space observatory, planetarium, and astronomy museum in California. Because the observatory is so high up, its offers an incredible view of the city below.
The sweeping views from the Observatory are out of this world during the day, and by night you can see the shimmering lights of downtown Los Angeles in the distance with the city lights spread out below you all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Legit Korean BBQ with a At the rooftop of the observatory, one can have a great view of the Los Angeles skyline including the iconic Hollywood sign. The Hollywood Cross sits on a hill next to the dilapidated (but currently being renovated) Ford Theater across from the Hollywood Bowl. Here, the 32 foot high cross watches silently over the city of angels.

Asphaltum or tar (brea in Spanish) has seeped up from the ground in this area for tens of thousands of years. The tar is often covered with dust, leaves, or water. Over many centuries, animals that were trapped in the tar were preserved as bones. B-movie star handprints. Come here FIRST before The Chinese Theater. A reminder that Spring is right around the corner. This is a rufous hummingbird right outside of the observatory. #StunningstructuresThe observatory in Los Angeles tends to get very crowded; especially during the summer time. Today, parking was full by 9:30 a.m.. #Hiking at #BronsonsCave #Hollywood #OutDoors Griffith Observatory in the early morning, just as Los Angeles awakes.

Admission to the building and grounds is free, but if you are interested in checking out some of the shows at the Samuel Oschin Planetarium there is a small fee. Try to go on a clear day for the best views of LA and the Hollywood sign!  Morning in Los Angeles, California from Griffith Park trails.
#Hiking Come at dusk and enjoy the sunset and #architecture overlooking LA. An outdoor shopping experience you don't want to miss. With all the best stores and more that you would like to shop at, a trip to The Grove is a must if you're in LA. There is a trolley that goes through the shopping area from one end to the other that you can hop on if you're too exhausted from all the shopping. Also, there's a neat farmers market located right next to The Grove Close up of the moon! This is a picture taken in the Mariposa Grove of #Yosemite #NationalPark, one of the most beautiful stretches of land in the US. Walk through, and you'll feel like you're in one of the most calming, relaxing places on Earth. #Hiking at #BronsonsCave #Hollywood #Tunel Crossroads of the World has been called America's first outdoor shopping mall.

Info copy from media . In Hancock park located in downtown LA are the La Brea tar pits. You can enter the park for free to see the tar pits themselves, as well as visit the museum for a nominal fee. One interesting fact was that the prior owner of this land brought the pictured mammoth here through downtown LA back in the 40's by towing it by VW beetle. What a sight that would have been! They have a lot restricted area (private)
you can't even bee hanging around at the front .Professional cameras are not allow
pictures with cellphones are ok .i take this one with my iPad,but I took some others (a lot) with my Camara ( I din't know it was not allow ) 😁#Spring . Hollywood cemetery museum and park. Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles, CA #Griffithobservatory

#BvsCities Wild Card Boxing Gym - This is the gym where Jamie Fox and Mark Wahlberg sweat it out but much more notable is that this is where Freddie Roach coaches the LB for LB World Champion Manny Pacquiao. Bronson caves aka where they filmed the exterior shots for Batman! The Chinese Theatre is a must see when visiting Hollywood. And it's difficult to miss as it's right on the Hollywood Walk of Fame... Didn't get a chance to go in, was just a lil tourist (lol), but just the outside is enough. You get a nice view of Asian #Architecture which is so uniquely interesting With unique hot dogs inspired by many of the films from Hollywood, Pink's is a great spot for a hot dog. Be prepared to wait in a long line if you go around lunch time, but it is well worth the wait. Celebrities also find Pink's to be a spot they enjoy, as you can see autographed photos from all the Hollywood stars! An amazing vista of all of the LA area very close to the Hollywood sign. The best ones are here #Ramones
#HollywoodForever cemetery museum and park.
There is a lot more but this place is so big
3 hours and I did not finish ,they close at 6 PM
Staff people is amazing special security
a wonderful people . I remember the Chinese theater use to look big ,but now with all this 2 walls at the side (new it looks small and is loosing all Chinese mean or architecture in mi opinion 😩.
TCL Chinese Theatre is a cinema palace on the historic Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6925 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California, United States. Originally known (and still commonly referred to) as Grauman's Chinese Theatre, it was renamed Mann's Chinese Theatre in 1973; the name lasted until 2001, after which it reverted to its original name. On January 11, 2013, Chinese electronics manufacturer TCL Corporation purchased the naming rights to the facility, making its official name TCL Chinese Theatre.This resulted in the first affiliation of the Chinese Theatre with an actual Chinese corporation.

Encountered a old school Winchell's Donut House in West Hollywood #RoadTrip #UbeIceCream #SweetSpot #LA Great place to catch the sunset! I have been wanting to take pictures of this installation since it was created in 2008.
The Griffith Observatory as a whole is an amazing piece of #Architecture but I personally fell in love with its stairs! Or maybe I just really like this picture, lol
Loved the design on the walls that gave it a Greek like feeling. #Stunningstructures Looking down over Los Angeles from the Observatory.

#la #view #citylights #griffithobservatory Sun fighting with clouds. It does not matter how times I hike in this place, the experiences are all different and unique. #StunningStructures Half way between hollywood and beverley hills there is a kind of light park. Perfect for a romantic escape. It is located right next to the museum of art. #roadtrip Previously Charlie Chaplins film studios. Now Jim Hensons but also a recording studio (where We Are The World was recorded among others) If you're familiar with the rock band Guns N' Roses, then you should be familiar with Canter's deli. This was the official hangout place for the rock group back in the early 80's and your reminded of it as soon as you walk in the front door with a lot of GN'R memorabilia. As for food, I had the corned beef and pastrami sandwich and paid an hefty price of $13.50 for a sandwich with coleslaw (fries not included). All in all, the food was great and the family took in the pleasant atmosphere and left happy.
Two thumbs up: 👍👍 The Hollywood Walk of Fame consists of more than 2,400 five-pointed terrazzo and brass stars embedded in the sidewalks along fifteen blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street in Hollywood, California. The stars are permanent public monuments to achievement in the entertainment industry, bearing the names of a mix of actors, musicians, directors, producers, musical and theatrical groups, fictional characters, and others. The Walk of Fame is administered by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and maintained by the self-financing Hollywood Historic Trust. It is a popular tourist destination, with a reported 10 million visitors in 2003. A mailbox in the Garden of Oz. This may be the BEST burger joint on the planet (fo real). I had the truffle burger. Smushed potatoes are tasty too. Great service, fun vibe. Golden Bridge Yoga is a Kundalini studio. They have regular classes and also offer special meditation events that range in duration and price. For example they held an 11-11-11 meditation session for $45 in advance and $50 at the door (if it's not already sold out) starting at 10:30am ending at 1:30pm. They also have shorter sessions like 7:30pm to 9:30pm for $25 in advance and $30 at the door. They offer drop in classes for $20 or you can be ambitious and get a class package which range from 5 class pass for $75 to 20 class pass for $220. Or if you are feeling really committed and ambitious you can go for a 30 Day Unlimited pass for $150 or Unlimited auto-pay option at $119. It's a great space and the teachers are knowledgeable and humorous. There is a good feeling here. And on the right day you might be in class with Carrie-Ann Moss (Trinity) from the Matrix trilogy! She is there to do yoga and/or meditate so I trust you will be respectful of that and not blab that you found out on Trover where she does yoga ;)
The cafe has a verity of yummy healthy food with savoury and sweet selections. A little on the pricy side but sooo good for you and very yummy.
The gift shop is small and the prices aren't bad, comparable to other yoga stores.
Check it out sometime if you can!
www.goldenbridgeyoga.com Old LA Weekly building Twelve Centimeter is a modern, gourmet confectionary offering a selection of cakes and cookies. These are called Ice Cookies with flavors like green tea, earl grey, strawberry, blackberry, spice, chocolate, mango and lemon. Back in Sunny LA. Nice jade color Such an amazing piece of pre-historic land in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of LA. I can't believe people would rather see the walk of fame than this museum!! Had a wonderful time exploring Hollywood Blvd. The Chinese Theater was truly wonderful to see.
Tomato pie with dollops of burrata at Pizzeria Mozza Paramount pictures view from right on the back from Hollywood Forever Cemetery museum and park . #Hollywood #ParamountPictures Gorgeous sunset! #springfun Iconic building - stunning view. A must see if you visit LA!
#losangeles #california This shot was taken at a gas station after an evening hike at Griffith Park. As I drove, I heard this loud noise under my car; therefore, I decided to pull over at gas station to figure out what was going on. It was a piece of carton which was stuck and was not able to remove. I decided to move vehicle in reverse and piece of carton was gone. When I exited vehicle to make sure that piece of carton was completely gone, I noticed this colorful, looking beetle. It is a ten-line June beetle or the watermelon beetle. Art Deco architecture is featured at the Griffith Observatory!

#SweetSpot View from the hill. The historic Pantages Theater is located in Hollywood near the landmark intersection of Hollywood and Vine and across the street from the W Hollywood Hotel. It was the last theater built by the vaudeville impresario Alexander Pantages. In has been a vaudeville venue and a movie house and more recently a venue for live theatrical productions. The Pantages has been used as a location in several films. A favorite quirky reference is Rickie Lee Jones' mention in her 1979 hit Hollywood is a fun place to hang out, people watch, and feel famous. The walk of fame is longer than I expected and there were near buildings to see all along the way. I thought it would take 2 hours to see, but we spent all day there. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds of tour buses, and a quick High Tower Elevator I seen coyotes all the time during my hikes at Griffith Park, but never this close. This coyote did not seem to be afraid of people at all. My first time at the Cinerama dome! Such a cool building. Pro tip: sit toward the front section for the full feeling of wonder. View from Los Angeles downtown This quiet and early scene was taken while hiking trails in Griffith Park.
#goldenhour Not 100% sure why there are peacocks in the cemetery...but there are and they are beautiful! As you enter the cemetery, make a left and they will be by the outer wall. The view over LA alone is worth getting up here... #EndOfTheDay #HollywoodLandmark #HotelRoosevelt LA in the AM We love visiting #LACMA when we are in #LosAngeles. Great itinerant and permanent exhibits will keep you going around, and during weekends there is a fun array of activities for #families and #kids. Summer nights at the Griffith are awesome. From great exhibits, panoramic views of LA, miles of trails or just hanging out on the lawn it's a great place to enjoy.
Plan to walk quite a bit as parking can be far. Bring water if it's summer too! We found this mural between Westerly Terrace and Local restaurant. This picture only shows a small segment. The full picture is a panorama composed of six frames. Guava and cream cheese pastry from Cafe Tropical in Silver Lake. Just right--not too sweet. #RedYellowGreen GO #labyrinth at #TheGetty The LA subway Kahlua and baileys pancakes!! 😭😭😭😭 so good! And paired with French press coffee? Heaven. Hamjipark's famous spicy pork ribs. A must try when you are in LA. Large plate of Korean style smoked duck. You get to double cook them by pan fry on your tabletop grill. Eat them with the cabbage salad or dip them into 3 different sauces, soy ginger garlic, dijon mustard or sea salt. I liked it crunchy on one side like bacon and wrapped with pickled dikon. #troveon and the oscar goes to..... A Rufous Hummingbird that I watched outside the observatory. It would land in the bushes for a few minutes before feeding on some long tubular flowers. People would walk right past it and not even notice it. I was able to get within 5 feet and it never flew. If you were going to compile a roster of Koreatown's greatest hits, it would be unthinkable to leave out the Dong Chi Mi Gook Su at the Corner Place.

There you go. Just try their signature cold noodle with high quality meat serving since 1982.
Great little place in K-town with amazing food and craft beers! Duck fat fries! Stairs that play piano music based on your movement. Had a blast running up and down these Mel's Drive In is a famous diner just off Holloywood Blvd. it's a classic 50's diner with great food & service!
