Sightseeing #1

Funny, when you live in a city or even a region you hardly know that place. Tourists, the so-called non-locals, know your place sometimes better than you do. So, when my friend A. visited me for a whole week over New Year's I knew we'd be going places and exploring areas I normally wouldn't visit, or have visited in the past and that's it.

We went all over. Pretty much crossed out all on her to-see list and had a blast!
However, there are still a few things we didn't get to see or do or enjoy (obviously, in L.A. that's very probable)...so I started a "next time" list for her when she returns. We even made southern California look so darn good for her that she started looking into apartments and moving cross country. I certainly wouldn't mind. I know why I moved!!! :) 

Some art had to be put into her sightseeing schedule too.

You may have recognized the lady on the right...it's Sierra!
We drove down Mulholland Drive, and loved it!

The following picture is the only one I got...and I learned my lesson...never give it to someone that doesn't know how to handle your camera...or a camera. We look tiny on that railroad.

And at some point, we decided to drive up to Alta Laguna Park (aka Top of the World Park) and sit down and enjoy one of the most marvelous views ever! I especially love the foggy pink sky in this one!

One of my friend's happens to be a ghost...hmmmm, should I be scared?!

More pictures to come...I'm still sorting out some!
We took a ton.
Obviously I don't want to bore you with so much beauty...haha!

Hope your day is marvelous!

You and Sierra always say you want to hang out with me and yet you always are right near me and never invite me...should I take it personal? lol
