    OK...I just got back from the Park...talked to Felix. We could all go to Mt. Hollywood, or go to Dante's the the tables before you get to the top. Felix is going to go to Cedar Forest. bottom line....the hike is still ON

      Mt. Hollywood; she's a strong mountain, she can hold 400 people no problem.

      1 · June 19, 2013

    • Michelle C.

      Options are super cool! It's like Let's Make a Deal. Let's do Trail#1, trail#2 or trail#3.

    June 21, 2013

  • Ted L.

    Hey, I checked the weather for Mt Hollywood. It said 72 degrees at 9 PM. Does that sound right? Bring a jacket anyway?(don't be a big shot- seinfeld).

    June 21, 2013

  • Norbert C.

    June 21, 2013

  • Ronnie L.

    So do you just "think" you might have to cancel the hike, or have you canceld? And who cares if labonge is holdng picnic?

    1 · June 19, 2013

    • Larry T

      Well, I'm gonna say it a third time, "who cares if labonge is holding picnic?"

    June 20, 2013

    • Larry T

      I sent u an email Annie.

      June 20, 2013

    • Larry T

      Sorry to hear you wont be there Amanda. Wonder if Mr.Deeds is gonna show up?

      June 20, 2013

  • Lee Z.

    just for the record....I was up there on LaBonge's Summer Solstice hike back in 2007. This was the first open hike allowed in GP since the big fire a month before. Many many people wanted to go in order to also see the damage done by the fire....it was devastating. But...the point I am making....there were 400 people at Mt. Hollywood. There was enough food to feed 800 people. The mountain handled the 400 very well. Even Mayor Villiaragosa did a fly-by in a helicopter. Ohh...there I go again....name dropping.

    • Scott H.

      I hear Tony's been running on the beach, maybe he's up for a hike this time!

      June 19, 2013

    • Ken S.

  • Nancy F

    Sorry Scott, I posted the excerpt showing where La Bonge was starting from...his destination is Mt. Hollywood.

    June 19, 2013

  • Scott H.

    Cool! We are still on for TGIF!

    June 19, 2013

  • Shari C.

    I agree. Can't we just hike to another spot?

    1 · June 19, 2013

  • Lee Z.

    Or we could, as Scott says, crash LaBonge's big party....there will be a lot of food !!!

    2 · June 19, 2013

  • Ronnie L.

    So do you just "think" you might have to cancel the hike, or have you canceld? And who cares if labonge is holdng picnic?

    June 19, 2013

  • Scott H.

    So he's at the Observatory, not at Mt. Hollywood?

    June 19, 2013

  • Nancy F

    Disregard previous post.

    Excerpt:

    ...WHO: Councilmember Tom LaBonge, together with diplomats from around the world, including Taiwan, Malaysia, and Peru

    WHEN: Friday, June 21, 2013, 6 p.m. to sunset

    WHERE: 2800 East Observatory Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 9002

    June 19, 2013

  • Scott H.

    We could crash his party, great international food!

    1 · June 19, 2013

  • Nancy F

    Maybe he's doing it earlier in the day???

    June 19, 2013

  • Lee Z.

    I think I will have to cancel this hike. Tom LaBonge has planned his Summer Solstice hike and there will be food and stuff up there.
