We don’t typically like visiting touristy spots more than once, but Griffith Observatory has some of the most incredible views of LA… so far that we’ve found anyways. Whenever we get visitors, we most likely end up there since it’s on several lists of top things to do in LA. The first time we visited, it was at night. I guess you can see some stars? With all the (light) pollution, I don’t feel like we saw that many out that night. We did get to see the sparkly lights of the city. They can kinda look like stars. ;) The last time we went, it was right around sunset. The thing about pollution is… it may make it harder to see the stars, but it gives you an amazing sunset.

Of course, I had to take a panorama with my phone. :) I’m still obsessed with the feature.
There are some hiking trails in Griffith park that we’ve been meaning to check out. Meanwhile, we got a bird’s eye view of the hikers on the trails. We’ll have to go one of these days.
You get a nice view of the hollywood sign from here, too.
One of the few times, I’m playing around with HDR.
