πŸ“· @rubenc_photography | Today is International Day of Peace πŸ•ŠοΈ The Thien Hau Temple is one of the best landmarks and religious spaces in L.A. to find your inner peace ✨ Located in Chinatown, Thien Hau Temple is a Taoist temple dedicated to Mazu, the goddess of the sea and the patron saint of sailors, fishermen, and those whose cultures are associated with the ocean. Shrines at the temple venerate Mazu, Guan Yu (god of war) and Fu De (god of the earth). The temple building was originally a Christian church that was purchased in the 1980s and transformed into a small Taoist temple. Following two years of construction, a larger temple was completed next door in September 2005. The temple was officially dedicated on March 25, 2006. #discoverLA

πŸ“· @jamesrelfdyer | Hike the Mount Lee & the Hollywood Sign via Brush Canyon Trail to get this view ✨ Park in the paved lot at the top of Canyon Drive. Walk north along the road, passing Camp Hollywood Land. Concrete quickly gives way to a dirt fire road that traces the hillside, ridge on your right, tree-filled canyon down to your left. At the 1.7-mile mark of your hike, you'll encounter a fork. Take the right. Plenty of horse poop lines the path, since stables are right below you, but it’s easily avoidable. The trail remains fairly flat, dry and exposed on the final rise. Once you reach pavement, take a right and climb. Near the top, you'll encounter white fence, views of the brown Griffith Park back country and the green Forest Lawn Cemetery. Corkscrew around to the south side of the mountain to see Lake Hollywood Reservoir and dead end at radio towers. Look down to see the Hollywood Sign’s towering white letters and to soak in panoramic views of L.A., then reverse field for a mainly downhill hike to the parking lot. | Distance: 6.1 miles. Address: 3200 Canyon Dr. Los Angeles, CA 90068. #discoverLA

πŸ“· @eeeyounice | Hiking goals: The Bridge to Nowhere ⚑ If you want to do this hike, get a USDA Forest Service Adventure Pass and hang it from your rearview mirror. This allows you to park at the trailhead, which resides at the end of Camp Bonita Road in the San Gabriel Mountains above Asuza. The trail isn’t especially grueling, but does require endurance πŸ’ͺ🏼 The Bridge to Nowhere was built in 1936 to connect the San Gabriel Valley with Wrightwood, which is along the Angeles Crest Highway. The road subsequently washed away in a 1938 flood. Now the bridge remains an arched curiosity, and L.A. County’s most popular place to bungee jump, which of course you should attempt only under trained supervision. #discoverLA | Distance: 10 miles. Address: Camp Bonita Road Azusa, CA 91702. #discoverLA
