    I planned to go as deep into the park as I possibly can. The ultimate goal was to find a road that connects to the other entrance of the Griffith Park through the Western Los Feliz, which is near the Greek Theatre. The first entrance, the one I frequently go to, is in the busy intersection of Los Feliz and Riverside. As usual, I listened to my music and walked half a mile to the entrance of the park. What I like about Griffith Park is its shady hiking trails and roads. Since most of its roads and trails are right next to acute slops of the mountain, it provides shade to many joggers and walkers during the summer months. On top of that, the trees provide the much needed breeze when it gets hot. Though I must admit, most of the flora was brown and with the drought that is in Southern California, everything seemed dead.

    Another similarity is that the court house is close by as well. The court house is on a large hill across the street from the new and old jail. I thought it was very interesting to see the old jail that was used in the 1800s. Striker went on to tell us that the jail was home to the sheriff where him, his family, and inmates stayed. This reminded me greatly of one of my favorite old T.V. shows, The Andy Griffith Show. We walked over to the new jail that is currently used and met with the chief…
