Walking (Half of) the Great LA Walk / by Eric Beteille

The plan was to step into this year's Great Los Angeles Walk at Echo Park Lake. Then cross the Los Angeles metropolis on foot: along Sunset Blvd., toward the Pacific Ocean. Today marked the eighth annual GLAW and I've marched some or all of every one of them.

This time, we made it a bit beyond the halfway point in Beverly Hills, about 10 miles from start. Then got hungry. Had lunch. Saw some friends. Went home. These were some of the other things I saw along the way.
