Friday, December 18, 2009 Above It All ( or above Los Angeles)

The third Friday in December in Los Angeles sunny skies and pushing eighty at noon and there's snow in the mountains of course. Those mountains are the last wall that separates Los Angeles from the rest of America. This is the view northwest from the Griffith Park Observatory, floating high above Hollywood.
