One of my favorite things to do in Los Angeles is to visit the Griffith Observatory in Griffith Park. The stunning vista offers amazing views of both the Hollywood sign, and on the other side downtown L.A. It’s a spot I’ve spoken about previously on ACL, but it is also one that never gets old. I’m finding that the more time I spend in Southern California the more I want to be bi-coastal. Even on an overcast / smoggy day the scenes at sunset are stunning. If you have a chance to visit the observatory, definitely take the time to experience it.

You might recognize this picture I took last year.

I had a realization that led to a wedding up there.
Rebel Without A Cause. Great scenes of teenage angst at the observatory. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdrmDwvIjE0
I was just about to ask if that’s where the scene from Rebel Without A Cause was filmed. Great scene.
It’s such a great park. From the observatory to the Dell it has a huge range of environments, I just love this place.
Intergalactic Planetary and very Cool
Of course it is mainly smog and its scattering effects that create such pretty sunsets.
“They say the fucking smog is the fucking reason you have such beautiful fucking sunsets”.
