Looking Up!

I was in awe the first time I visited Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California.  The view of the city is spectacular from up there.  While walking around the rim of the building, I came across the bust of James Dean.  I learned that it was to commemorate the use of the observatory in James Dean’s movie Rebel Without a Cause.  Luckily we brought a few snacks and found a sweet spot to sit overlooking the city.  The early Fall weather of Los Angeles was crisp, but with the sun, it was all good.

The next time, I’ll have to visit during dusk.  And bring a picnic basket with goodies so I can spend a few hours hanging out around the vicinity.  I am so glad we decided to explore the city and check out the observatory.  It was so worth the visit.

  3. I have no doubt it was worth it. I love the idea of a basket full of goodies and a view at dusk 🙂

    • Yes, dusk is one of my favorite times of the day. I cannot wait to go back again but prepared with my basket of treats.
