Downtown to Santa Monica

Great L.A. Walk gathers
As many as a couple hundred hoofers walked Sunset and Santa Monica boulevards — from downtown to the bluffs in Santa Monica — today in the latest of Michael Schneider's Great Los Angeles Walks. (They've done Wilshire and Pico in previous years, and Eric Lynxwiler — whose earlier walks from end to end of Wilshire Boulevard inspired a certain bookjoined in this year.) The photo of the starting point at Union station is from Atwater Village Newbie's Flickr stream. He blogs the finish.
