I wanted to add a notch to my achievement belt. Hiking to the seemingly elusive Hollywood sign would do the trick. From the front porch of my mom and dad’s home I could see the sign. It teased me. I had flown across the Pacific Ocean, but I hadn’t ventured very far in my hometown. Yesterday was perfect for changing all that. Although I set out to rise early I did not get up until around 10.
The night before I mentioned that I wanted to hike to the sign to my mom and dad. Dad was busy, but mom was all for it. After I awoke I asked mom if she was ready, but she had plans to run a few errands. However she said we could afterwards. I drove my mom around the city as we ran her errands and around 1pm we were off to the Hollywood hills.
