Hello, My People!
Yesterday, some gal pals and I ventured into Hollywood to take another Secret Stair Walk.
Some of you may remember these are hikes that explore the staircases built into the hillsides of the Los Angeles area in the 1920's when the idea was that LA would be built around a trolley system.
Here's Karen, leading the pack up one of the staircases.
She was our fearless guide and carried the all-important guide book.
Here's just one of the many staircases. They are challenging, and maybe a little addicting too. There were a total of 421 stairs on this walk.
The hike went through a great neighborhood, full of architectural surprises, like these two orange houses.
This campanile-style tower is actually an elevator for thirty of the residents that live in the area.
It was a relatively clear day and so we went up by the Hollywood sign and got a great view of the city.
