Behind the Hollywood Sign

Behind the Hollywood Sign

This is one of my favorite spots to be in the Los Angeles area: behind the iconic Hollywood sign on Mount Lee.

Not too many people know their way around the canyon, so it is a less crowded place to hike and reflect along with a spectacular view on the City of Angels.

I always felt overwhelmed to look down on the melting pot of cultures, coming from all over the world to chase their dreams.

For each and every Angeleno, this sign stands for something very personal – hope, dreams, success, failure, not giving up…
