A bit of a traditional stop for LA visitors, but at least a worthy one last night. Matt wanted to check out Griffith Observatory at night. We checked out the planetarium show about that connected the legends of the Valkyries to explanations of the Northern Lights (which I didn't know) and Matt liked too, since he sees them in the sky regularly at home. It was a good night for the Observatory: busy (of course), but not so crowded that we couldn't get around, a short enough line to look through the telescope, and free enough just to wander one of LA's best spots.
