General Discussion / Secret Stairs - LA River Apr 6th, 2017

We started the hike by having coffee & cake at a local shop.
The walk along the LA river is about 4 miles.
Along the river, we came across a bridge, a bridge of love where couples place padlocks on the bridge as a symbol of their forever love !.
Lunch was at Tam O'Shanters, an old Irish/Scotch restaurant in Atwater village.
