A Favorite Los Angeles Tour View of the Lake and the Sea
Looking out over the Los Angeles basin from above Lake Hollywood you can almost always see the ocean at Santa Monica. On spring days like this there are puffy clouds racing overhead and already the moisture in the air is obscuring the more distant Catalina Island. With the Hollywood Sign behind us we direct our private Los Angeles tour guests’ attention to the fabulous homes visible up here in the Hollywood Hills and the Mulholland Dam which is holding back about 2.5 billion gallons of water – just in case we need it. There are emergency services transmitters above the Hollywood Sign keeping Los Angeles secure and the water seen here is not in general circulation but rather kept safely stored in the event of a catastrophe.
