Hello everyone, sorry this post is late, we had a long day yesterday finishing up our Route 66 trip.

We started the day grabbing breakfast at a local spot in Hesperia called the Outpost. It was a great home cooked breakfast.

Then we headed down the road to LA and started hitting all of that great LA traffic ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„. We got a tip on a good spot to see the Hollywood Sign. So we headed to Hollywood Lake Park and got some great photos.

We headed back down the Hollywood Hills and went by multi million dollar homes, and almost got sideswiped by a Fedex truck. We headed to Hollywood Blvd and got out for a bit and walked the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It was pretty cool to see all of the celebrities that have a Star on this iconic walkway.
