The Great Los Angeles Walk 2010: Wilshire Was Walked.
A huge chunk of us at the finish line... the Santa Monica statue at the end of Wilshire.
About a hundred Angelenos joined in our 15.8-mile hike from Pershing Square to the ocean via Wilshire Boulevard. And the best part: Despite all the gloom and doom rain forecasts, the weather was perfect.
I'll have a full report tomorrow, but for now check out this report from L.A. Observed's Kevin Roderick.
Thanks to Councilman Tom LaBonge; "Wilshire Boulevard" authors Kevin Roderick and Eric Lynxwiler; L.A. Conservancy docent Marcello Vavala; and LACMA staffer Mary Lenihan, all of whom gave great speeches and shared some history for us.
