It is HOOOOOTTT today. I was bored, so I slathered on a ton of sun screen and headed out to explore on my scooter. Since I can't take it on the freeway, I wanted to see where I could go on surface streets besides Pasadena. I headed down Colorado thinking I'd go into Glendale or maybe even Burbank when I saw Figueroa come up. I thought, "Is that THE Fig?" so I followed it, hoping to make it all the way into downtown. It eventually ran out, but did take me close enough to figure out how to get there, and before long, I was tooling around Chinatown in the heat. Since I can get into downtown, that opens up Hollywood and pretty much everything else to me - it just means it would take hours to get there. But today, I had nothing but time so it was fun to explore. I went through Highland Park and part of South Pasadena and had basically shadowed the route the Gold Line takes into downtown and back.
