The Griffith Observatory
All from after the renovations of 2006.
The most amazing feat of engineering is how they kept the entire original building and added all the structures for the expansion down the mountain.
Be sure to watch the construction film at the Leonard Nemoy Event Horizon theater when you visit!

We got off fairly early for the Griffith Observatory where we planned to take some pictures. You’ll notice the out-in-the-country feeling in other photos. From this view it’s all LA.
