Saturday afternoon we visited the most beautiful place I've visited so far in Los Angeles, The Getty Museum. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but my friend Holland planned a picnic so Peter and I joined the group. (Which actually turned out to be quite a few people, so fun!) We parked in a parking structure and were then ushered to a line (much like at an amusement park) to wait for a tram. After waiting a few minutes we boarded the tram which took us to the top of a mountain and we were there. The view, oh my goodness, the view.
It. Is. Incredible.
You can see all the way to the snow capped mountains in the east, to downtown LA, Beverly Hills, all the way to the ocean! Not to mention, the weather on this particular Saturday was a clear, sunny, perfect, 75 degree February day. (Oh how I love you SoCal..) We enjoyed lunch, relaxing on a hill in the sun, climbing to the top of the museum to take in the view, and exploring famous paintings. As you can tell, I loved the Getty and I can't wait to go again!
My friend Parker took the photo below of the whole group that went to the Getty! (I'm not sure why I look so prego in this photo, don't worry.. I'm not!)
