the skunks of los feliz

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy has a great new website that pulls together information about parks across Los Angeles and the nearby valleys. I was especially excited when I found a link to a Griffith Park trail map. Unfortunately, it looks to be the same incomplete offering the city peddles on it's Griffith Park site. The 5, 134, and 101 are well marked. The trail from Fern Dell to Dante's View is not. Some amateur cartographers have attempted to create a comprehensive trail map, but Col. Griffith's gift to the city has managed to elude capture by professional map-makers.

Which is just as well, I guess. The rectilinear expanse of the city that surrounds the park is order enough. Maybe the interior should remain uncharted, a blank space with a legend that reads "Here there be coyotes".
