Great L.A. Walk 2007: Pico Boulevard
Last year Mike Schneider of Franklin Avenue Blog celebrated his 10th year in L.A. by walking Wilshire Boulevard from downtown to Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. Then he decided to make it an annual thing and this year selected Pico from the historic Coca Cola plant at Central Avenue, all the way to the beach. Here's some photos I took along the way.

All told what with parking at 6th & Spring and walking to Pico & Central and then having to walk to Wilshire & 4th (via 7th & Colorado) to catch the 720 bus back downtown I covered a total of 19.7 miles

The walk itself started around 9:30 a.m., and broke for a 90-minute lunch at our noon arrival at Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles. A splinter group (including me) got itchy and were walking again before 1 p.m. and we arrived just in time for the sun to set into the fog at 4:42 p.m. The main group of walkers led by Mike arrived about an hour later to much congratulations.
