Annie Canyon and Bike Ride

In mid-2016 a little slot canyon in Solana Beach was reopened to the public. It had been closed for some time due to its fragile condition and some vandalism. We wanted to go check it out. The hike is quite short, so we also racked up our bikes and planned a ride along the coast shortly after.

LACMA

Miles of traffic so slow it renders my speedometer useless, sidewalks and underpasses filled with Hoovervilles, and people that have spent more money on their face than I have on my car…. That is how I would have described Los Angeles in the past. However, after T and I decided to take our brand new bikes up for a museum jaunt, I am happy to say that I now have a new view of LA.  We parked for free in Koreatown, and rode several miles to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (also known as LACMA). The busy streets made all the more treacherous by a rather large storm that hit in and around downtown.

One soggy hour later, we arrived at the museum. We took our time perusing “At Home with Monsters,” an exhibition of filmmaker Guillermo del Toro’s personal collection of curious and macabre artifacts, drawings, and concept film art from which he draws his inspiration. To save both you the readers and me the photographer, there are no lame images of cool items inside glass cases.
