Hollywood sign hiking

 Hollywood sign is a prominent landmark in Hollywood hills, Los Angeles, you can saw it from far away. It actually created as  an advertisement for a housing development called Hollywoodland but later on changed to Hollywood and become iconic to filming industry.
 Last month I went there for hiking with a group of friends, it took us about 2 hours ++, with the spring chilling air it's indeed a good day for hiking. There is a lot of people hiking , jogging or horse riding there. From the lush green surrounding we able to saw Downtown LA, Griffith observatory and housing around Hollywood hills. It's a good place to hiking during winter and spring. I don't think hiking there during summer is a good idea since there is not much shade.
