Mile 600 Reflections / Los Angeles

About 50 miles ago I had to say farewell to Highway 1. I wanted to get
to Los Angeles to watch the sunset and around here, Highway 1 becomes
the Pacific Coast Highway, winding through Ventura and Malibu and not
fast enough to get me to where I wanted to go. The 101 (yes Marie,
that's what it's called here) filled up like a sponge with traffic,
leaving me feeling like I wasn't on an adventure at all. However, once
I got here, I shed the freeways quickly, fleeing into the Hollywood
hills to find this view. I plan to spend a leisurely time watching a
beautiful smoggy sunset. I had to do a bit of four-limbed climbing to
get here, but it's totally worth it. Isn't it always?
