4th of July!

We climbed Cahuenga Peak and then, at an altitude of 1,821 feet, watched dozens of fireworks shows from around the city. It was so beautiful up there. Truly the most fantastic view I've seen since the Grand Canyon. What a great way to spend Independence Day.

The climb up was long and arduous, with many stops as my legs couldn't go on. That said, we made it up and I didn't throw up any of the chili I made for dinner. Thank god for the full moon because we would never have been able to see on the way down. Too bad it was still really freakin' dark. I tripped and fell a few times resulting in a wicked cut. Yes I bled for America.

If you are brave enough to look, here is the picture of the wound. SCARY.
