Have you ever been up close to the infamous Hollywood sign?  I’ve seen it many times on visits to the LA area as well as many more times on the screen.  But, this is the first time I got up so close.  And whereas other photos I took on this little beauty of a hike show more of a close-up of the sign, I happen to like this one.  I mean, who doesn’t love the night sky?  I sure do.  I started up the trail with the sun still up, but I wandered around a bit and took my time.  Eventually, the sun set and the stars started showing themselves.  Orion and Venus became prominent.  Quiet and Hollywood don’t often go together, but they sure did here on this night.
