There’s the Hollywood Sign

Riding up Beachwood Drive you get this wonderful view of the Hollywood sign up toward the top of Mt. Lee as a backdrop to the homes built along the canyon.  Folks on buses only get this close as larger vehicles cannot negotiate the twists and turns of the small canyon roads leading higher up the…
