This was one of the top things that was super on my list that I can’t believe I never got around to… until I did!
My great friend James asked what I wanted to do on basically kind of my last real-ish weekend of living-ish in LA. And I said, “I have to hike to the Griffith Observatory, consarn it, or my head will explode” (as I should’ve already done it four million times).
So, we went.
We went a little later than we’d planned, ’cause you know, packing. Life. It happens.
I was slightly worried about hiking at night ’cause I thought it might be too dark and we might get a little lost (or eaten by an animal or something, who knows).
The observatory is pretty. You get to do a fair amount of walking outside to get between different parts of the building(s).
You get to walk up steps to be able to look through this huge telescope-y observe-y thing. (You can tell I’m a Mensa member, huh? A big telescope-y thing…)
There’s also science exhibits and I think even a film playing (that we didn’t watch) in the main building.
It’s really cool and pretty and science-y and learn-y (again with the super smart words there), and I’d totally recommend it as a fun thing to do!
