Just when I think I've exhausted all of the possibilities for awesomeness within Griffith Park, I come across something new. Yesterday, after a trip to the driving range and putting green, I walked over to the site of the Los Angeles Zoo before it moved to its present location in 1964. I had heard about the old zoo and seen glimpses of it on hikes, but I never imagined that it would be so extensive and accessible. Far from being hidden away on some remote trail, it's a giant picnic area.
A post-apocalyptic, rusting, dangerous picnic area. Cool!
Full set of photos here. I highly recommend a visit. It looks like something from the island on Lost.
