Just An Observation

Last week before the Radiohead show in LA I wanted to get there a little bit early so I could go to one of my favorite places in LA - the Griffith Observatory. I just love the view from up there. And it was a beautiful day. I know you can still see the thin scum of smog, but you should have seen when I was there in July - I bet you would've barely been able to see those downtown buildings. The Observatory was closed for renovations the last time I was in LA before this summer, so it was good to finally be able to go up there again. Oddly enough, even though I've been there about 4 or 5 times, the building has never once been open when I've been there, so I've never been inside. This time was no exception - it's closed on Mondays.

The Observatory was featured in Rebel Without A Cause, as well as a bunch of other movies and TV shows (even MacGyver!).
