A drive down Mulholland Highway

New Years Day 2009 – we decide to take a drive, which we haven’t done in a long time.  We decided to pick up Mulholland Highway at Topanga Canyon and drive towards the coast.

We packed the dog and Aviva and I into the car and took off.  There are a few treacherous sections of road that reminded us of Highway 1 north of San francisco.

We stopped as we entered the hills to take a few pictures.

We then drove to the Paramount Ranch, which is where a number of westerns were filmed; in addition, the ranch served as South Korea for the filming of M.A.S.H.

We drove further to the Rocky Oaks park, which is a nice small park to walk around.  We turned around at Route 23 and stopped at the Peter Strauss Ranch.
