Not all good hikes are in parks or on beaches.
On Tuesday we decided to take a self-guided walking tour of downtown LA. I had found information thru the Los Angeles Conservancy on the internet before we left. I was under the impression that we could get an audio app on Craig's phone, but when we got there it turned out the app was only for iPhones, not Android phones. However we were able to find the Conservancy office, and they were nice enough to print out a couple of PDFs for us.

I have not included our pictures of all the old theatre marquees on Broadway. None of them seem to have been maintained or restored, and they all looked very sad.

Sometimes pictures just cannot do justice to the visual richness of a space. The wood, skylight, wrought iron railings and open elevators of the Bradbury building were true "eye candy".

My pedometer registered a bit over five miles. It started to get a bit hot in the afternoon and I was happy to find this lovely bit of shade to relax in.
Our final stop was at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, but we took so many pictures there that I've decided it deserves a separate post.
With that I leave you with a couple of signs we noticed on our walk!
