On Sunday after Church, I decided to take the Pacific Coast Highway into LA, find the legendary Mulholland drive and stop at all the scenic overlooks. I’ve never been much into celebrity worship so I had no interest in the “Walk of Fame” or an overpriced bus tour of the celebrities houses. I thought about going down to Rodeo Drive or Sunset Blvd just to wander around, but by the time I finished my odyssey on Mulholland drive (with the short 1 1/2 hour detour through Beverly hills that I described previously), I’d had about enough of LA.
I drove this route once before the last time I was here a couple of years ago. I decided then that someday I was going to ride my bike to San Diego and then ride the PCH all the way north to Washington State.
Will probably have to wait until I’m truly retired, but it’s a worthy goal.
After passing through Malibu to Santa Monica, I headed north on 10 and then 405 to Mulholland drive.
More money than sense I suppose.
This place was directly behind and above me as I was taking the picture of the Hollywood sign. I just turned around to snap this shot.
And finally, the definitive downtown LA panorama, click at your peril…the full sized version is 3.4 Mb.
That’s it. Now I’ll stop torturing you with California pictures.
Interestingly, less than a week after I left California, I was almost as far away from LA as you can get and still be in the Continental US: Kennebunk Maine. Guess what I’ll be posting about next?
