Wisdom Tree

The other day my beautiful and adventure loving friend, Emily and I set out on a hike on a more uncommon trail to the Hollywood sign. It had been a bucket list type of goal of mine to get to the Hollywood sign, and it really isn’t that hard, and I’ve lived in southern California for years, so it was time do it! The first hour (maybe two actually) was spent hiking up & down the wrong trails.
