Hike 2012.056 -- Mt Hollywood Road and Mulholland Trail
However, I had to work before I could walk, and I had a relatively light lunch during my shift. By the time I hit the trail, at 5:30pm, I was already tired and hungry. And thirsty! It was probably still in the 90s as I walked, even as the sun dropped down towards the horizon. Had plenty of water, but I sure could have used a Power Bar!
I also snapped some pictures on the Observatory grounds before heading back to my car.
If I decide to try to hike Hollywood Reservoir after work, I'll need to make a point of eating a snack before I hike, and maybe driving to a different trail head. Alternatively, I could have taken a higher, ridge-running route over to Mt. Lee Drive, then dropping down from there. That way would be longer, with more climbing, though.
BTW, turns out there's a mountain lion living in Griffith Park. I'll keep an eye out for him.
