Life Without Wheels: Chronicle of a Car-Free Lifestyle
 
After testing my legs and wrists against the hills of Griffith Park this coming weekend, a friend and I will test our wills and brakes against Los Angeles Crest Highway and the trip to Mount Wilson Observatory (map displayed below) on Veteran's Day. If you check out the elevation feature, you'll see that it travels up about 5700 feet and the last 15 miles range from 5% to 7% grades. The best thing about this trip is going to be the coasting down a 7% grade we're going to earn on the way up and the hot shower when we get home.
