    Near where we met, they used to have "love-ins" during the 60s. It used to be a place where thousands used to hear concerts:

    In '33 there was a fire in the old zoo area where we hiked. It killed 29 people: http://kurtkamm.com/the-inside-...­

    Griffith who gave the park to the city shot his wife! Griffith shot his wife in the presidential suite of the Arcadia Hotel, as she knelt on the floor before him. Surprisingly, the shot did not kill her, but she was left disfigured and lost her right eye.

    Also, where the new zoo is, is where thousands of veterans used to live after WWII: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ro...­

    For those who have never been here before, the directions by Google, MapQuest, etc will take you too far. Look at the picture above. That is our meeting spot. If unsure, click on links to maps above to see meeting spot.
