Hollywood sign

It took us some time - over a year - but we finally went to see the Hollywood sign! I mean we saw it before but never went very close. After researching a little how to get there we found a few different options and decided to go on a hike. We wanted to do it for a few months but it was so hot we always postponed it to later. Yesterday we figured it was the best time to go for two reasons. First, it was pretty cold so when you have to carry a 40 lbs baby you won't die, and second, it was black Friday so most people were probably shopping!

And it turned out to be a great choice - we came across almost no one...

We took the Hollyridge trail that was supposedly easy and not too long. The beginning was pretty steep and for me. Carrying Mason, it wasn't the easiest but it got easier on the actual trail road.

 The view was spectacular and the light at sunset was beautiful.





Mason usually doesn't like to stay to long in the baby carrier so I had to distract him constantly. I didn't want to let him run free because he's so fearless he could have jumped off the cliff...
I think a helicopter base was close by because we saw quite a few. Every time we saw one Mason waved "hi" to it...


I love carrying Mason on my back. I don't do it often enough anymore but I think I'll try doing it more from now on. The feeling of him being close to me and showing him stuff, while he actually listened and was interested, is so good...




And sometimes I even got to have a hug which makes the whole thing like heaven!
