I headed on over to Griffith Park to meet up with T so we could go for a hike. This motivating myself to workout isn’t really working out too well so I thought maybe, just maybe, doing it with someone else would at least force me to try. The plan was to meet at Fern Dell, hike up to the Observatory, and then go on further from the Observatory all the way to the top. The things I’ve heard about Griffith Park hikes are that they’re easy… It wasn’t that easy. It definitely wasn’t hard, but I don’t think it’s a cakewalk. Or maybe it was the weather or the shortcuts that we took that made it harder. All in all, it was a good workout. And I’m not as out of shape as I thought I was. I guess that’s a good thing.
After the hike we stopped by the House of Pies to get something to eat. The House of Pies is a diner with no gimmicks and convenient parking. I ordered the Cheeseburger with Avocado. It wasn’t the best burger I’ve had but it wasn’t bad either. It was to my liking, a simple burger. The fries were fried to my liking too, with a nice crisp. Of course with a name like “House of Pies,” you cannot not try the pies here. I got the Fresh Peach Pie to take home. And may I say, that is a good pie. Fresh peaches in a nice sweet syrup, a nice buttery crust, with some nice whipped cream with a heavier consistency than those found at the grocery store. I got no complaints about this place.
