Griffith Observatory

I've been waiting forever for the perfect weather conditions to grace a smog- and commitment-free Saturday in LA so we could head to the Griffith Observatory. Last weekend, I gave in to the realization that I could potentially wait forever for such an occurrence. We woke up on a mostly-cloudy Saturday morning, packed the diaper bag, and drove to Griffith Park -- smog and all! And you know what, it was still worth the drive.

There's something about city skylines that makes my heart happy, and the Los Angeles skyline is my favorite of all. I especially love the view from the 5, right before we turn onto the 60. We usually hit that spot at twilight and I never fail to tell Matt just how much I love this city. It's just so beautiful! It was fun to see the skyline from a higher vantage point at the observatory. Griffith Park also offers great photo ops with the Hollywood sign, for the record. In addition to the lovely views, the observatory itself is camera-ready with interesting architectural details. Inside is pretty cool, too, with an awesome planetarium, lots of interesting learning stations, and mega-powered telescopes. We want to go back to check that fancy glass out at night sometime this summer.
