      Darn. Hate to miss this but something else came up.

    What kind of food should be brought? Not sure how "regular" food would hold up in a backpack for an hour, plus the drive out to Griffith Park... Not to mention hot food couldn't possible stay hot for that long.

      Bring what you are comfortable with.

      You'll be surprised what can stay hot or cold if you pack it right.
