I saw some interesting things from the air on my flight, and this scene is a favorite. What we are looking at here in the right side of the photo, is the Griffith Observatory. It is a large white building with a brown dome. At the upper left is the famous Hollywood sign. That iconic sign was originally created in 1923 as an advertisement for a local real estate development, called "Hollywoodland." Eventually the "land" was removed in 1948. In 1978 the sign was completely rebuilt. The letters are 45 feet high, and the sign is 350 feet wide. At the top of the photo is "The Valley" which you have probably heard of - as in "valley girls." This is a larger image, so please click on it to see more details.
