The George Harrison Tree

Filed under: — stan @ 4:38 pm

Today’s bike club ride was a visit to Griffith Park to see the George Harrison Tree. We’ve been to see this before, but it’s been a while. This tree made the news a few years ago, when it was reported that the original tree had been killed by and infestation of beetles. Go figure.

On the way there, we passed Little Dom’s in Los Feliz. I’ve been watching the HBO documentary “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark”, and in it, Michelle McNamara and Patton Oswalt mentioned several times about how much they liked the food there. So I thought I should make a note of where it is for future reference.

We rode up Hillhurst and Vermont into the park. At the top, we saw the tree, and the (currently closed) observatory. Then we continued on, over Mt Hollywood to Burbank and snacks and drinks at Priscilla’s.

The ride home was pretty uneventful. It was a nice ride.

44 miles.
