L.A. traffic was terrible. It took 1.5hrs to drive 30mi from Redondo Beach (thats average 20mph). I started the hike by myself 20mins behind the group and somehow found the way across Griffith Park. I was 0.5 mi from the Hollywood sign when I discovered that my camera had fallen out of my backpack along the way. I was really fond of that camera. It was a $300+ Canon waterproof/shock-proof camera that I had bought specifically to carry along on hikes. I had an empty sick feeling and was pretty p*ssed off at myself for loosing the camera. The only thing I could do was continue hiking up to the sign. At 100 yards from the sign, I saw Ed and the group coming down towards me. So I turned around at that point and joined up with the group. Up until then, I can't say it was one of the best days I've ever had. However it was a perfect day for a hike. The weather was super and the view from Griffith Park was as spectacular as I've ever seen it. I'm still gonna give this hike 5 stars. Thanks Ed.

I don't know if you were aware, but I had difficulty finding sweeps today on the hike. I have sweeps so I don't lose anyone. This is for YOUR benefit. This hike Meetup is about helping out. This Meetup isn't about coming to hikes and not helping out. If you don't want to help out, then please find another Meetup group to join.
This Meetup group isn't for you.
