Calico Ghost Town & Needles

Second day of our vacation, we leave Los Angeles and travel to Needles. It is a long drive and we planned to visit Calico Ghost Town before we stop at needles for overnight and continue our journey to Grand Canyon for the next day. But before we leave Los Angeles we want to see the HOLLYWOOD sign of course. We asked the person at the hotel where we can see the sign and he told us to go to Griffith Park Observatory. Set our GPS to that place. it up in the hill and passed so many beautiful houses on the way to the hills.
The best view we can took with our camera.Hmmm need larger camera
