California Part 2: Hollywood and Santa Monica

Hiking to the Hollywood Sign 

Downtown Hollywood

Santa Monica

My trip to California ended so quickly. I'm looking back at these pictures feeling like it was weeks ago when I was only their one week ago. I loved every aspect of the trip, but I think my favorite place was Santa Monica. It was so adorable! The pier was tiny but note-worthy, the beach was gorgeous, the shopping was perfect, ah, if I could live there I would. 
I also loved the hiking. The view was like nothing I have ever seen before and climbing the hills with my two best friends, looking down at the city is a memory I will never forget. 

California, I miss you already.
