I kid you not. I believe it wasn’t, but 100 meters before I was thinking “what did I get myself into?” This was not easy. This was hard, very hard. I forgot my water and already felt as if my lungs couldn’t get enough air. Yes, I was Anna from frozen “is the air thinner up here?” after only three steps.
The views, however, were breathtaking. I do have to say there is nothing like seeing the beauty of what God has made. All the stops, all the sightseeing. I sucked it up. In all reality, it was extraordinary. I can only imagine what it would have been like without all the fog/smog that was in the air. Joel and Cherry said we should see what it looks like after it rains. This hike was the first time the thought of moving to LA came into my mind. I was ready to move to LA. Not because of the smog but because of the friendship I now had with my brother and sister who I never see. Also because of the thought of being able to climb this hill some would call a mountain every week and take in all its glory would be wonderous.
All in all, it may not have been as I expected but much more satisfying. I made it. I hiked, and I conquered. I checked off my first to do and felt accomplished. I would and will do it again. Next time I will not however take my massive piece of two-ton machinery with me and just use my phone.
Have you hiked to the Hollywood sign before? Keep an eye out for the other fun, eventful things that happened on our trip.
