There was a time when you could regularly see all the way to the ocean from Sierra Madre. Our city's founder, Nathaniel Carter, even had a hotel that he called the Ocean View.
Nowadays, our views generally consist of much closer locations in the daytime, and city lights at night. So, imagine my surprise a few evenings ago when, walking along Carter Avenue, I caught a teeny glimpse of downtown Los Angeles. At least I think it was Downtown. I'm going to go with that, because it was pretty exciting!
