Griffith Observatory is an icon of Los Angeles, a national leader in public astronomy, a beloved civic gathering place, and one of southern California's most popular attractions. The Observatory is located on the southern slope of Mount Hollywood in Griffith Park, just above the Los Feliz neighborhood. It is 1,134 feet above sea level and is visible from many parts of the Los Angeles basin.
On Saturday, Ryan joined us for a tour around L.A. on the Red Line. We spent most of the day at the Griffith Observatory, with a stop for lunch in Little Tokyo.
