Hiking in Downtown LA

Our club's February hike was another guided tour by the LA Conservancy. Now, while we were hiking through the central business district, I knelt down to get this photo of our guide, and then later some club members said they liked it. And, the more I looked at it the more I like the multiple parallel alignments, converging lines, bluebird sky and reflected illumination. I'm not known for great photos, but I think this is one of my favorites. I sent it to the Conservancy with permission to use, and was told they're interested to use it.

New Year's Day hike to the Hollywood Sign

Hiking Club was out there on NYD, to enjoy perfect hiking weather in the world's greatest park! Stops included the Hollywood sign on Mt Lee and the Batcave

 While on the mountain we waved for our selfie at the Hollywood Sign Webcam. One of the cams is mounted on the water tank down there, above the second 'O'.

That's us waving

On the hike back down, you can see the cavity that is Bronson Quarry
