Echo Park had been on my to go list for ages. Finally, I took the time to stop by. To be honest when I got there, I thought twice about getting out of my car because I wasn't too sure about what kind of people I would run into. But in the end I told myself that I hadn't driven all the way there to drive off again. There were some tourists, some locals; they were working out, fishing or just having some quiet time. I walked all around the lake, soaked up some sun and took way too many photos of palm trees.
