A View Like No Other
No visit to Los Angeles is complete without a visit to the Hollywood Hills. For me, the absolute best place to go is Griffith Observatory.
This particular trip had us at the airport around 4am, and with the longer trip from Anaheim we decided to spend the day in town. While most things were closed, we were able to grab coffee at intelligentsia. I always cherish trips to California for multiple reasons, but having access to several of the best coffee shops in the US is an added bonus.
After grabbing coffee, we were treated with a sunrise like no other. While this was partially due to the wild fires ravaging the area, it was the early morning glow coming over the hills that made this visit special.
The number of individuals out relaxing and enjoying the peace and calm in an otherwise busy city surprised me, but it makes sense. I now know the secret to handling the unrelenting traffic on a daily basis.
