Summer Solstice at the Griffith Observatory
Last Saturday was the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. Edward and I decided to make a day of it–little did we know that half of Los Angeles had the same idea…
So we wandered around a little bit, took a hike up the mountain looking for the best view of the “HOLLYWOOD” sign, and then took in the exhibits.
We brought along picnic fixin’s and stopped in a park to dine.
Well, I went back to the truck for something, and when I turned around we had a visitor. Needless to say, I was slightly alarmed…
In the end it turned out to be an incredible experience. Since the coyote seemed at ease with humans, I kicked a bone that was on the lawn in his direction and he went over to investigate. I went back to the table, and we watched him play with the bone, then eventually meander off.
Both Edward and I felt gratitude for the encounter. Here’s the only picture I got off with my new lens (that did not like the low level of light in the Park.)
