Los Angeles Walking Tour: 05-15-2010

Walking tour of downtown L.A. on a fine Saturday. Union Station to L.A. Live and back with all sorts of stuff in between. About 8 or so miles.

Trail is in great shape! Beer available.

Pics.

Cool mural (at least 5 stories tall, can't remember specifics)...

Jim-san,

Those are called Omikuji, a kind of fortune cookie thingy without a cookie. Very Happy   After you draw one, hang it on the rack (sometimes tree branches, fences, etc.).

LOL. Ice axe to fend off the panhandlers.

Lots of things to climb if it wasn't frowned upon.
