Consider This Practice for November's Great Los Angeles Walk



Did you miss the fourth annual Great Los Angeles Walk last November? First off, shame on you. You missed an amazing trek through Historic West Adams, among other sites.

But not all is lost: Friend of Franklin Avenue (and Great Los Angeles Walk vet) Will Campbell (above, with another Walk regular, Joni) is putting together a walk down Adams and Jefferson Blvds.

Normally a bike-riding fiend, Will has also been known to embark on lengthy all-day hikes -- down Sunset and down Western, for example. His course for March 6 is a bit more tame: Just 15 miles. He writes:

My next in a semi-irregular mostly biannual series of silly walks is scheduled to take place on the sixth day of the appropriately named month of March — and will be a far less WTF-inducing distance of 15 miles that starts and ends at Hoover and Jefferson and whose route will stick primarily to Jefferson and Adams boulevards across the interesting neighborhoods they traverse and will include an ascent to take in the spectacular panoramic views afforded by the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook State Park.

Even better: since the shorter distance means we don’t have to get stepping at the crackadawn, the walk will get moving at a far more civilized hour of 10 a.m. Hope you can join me.
