Lets Go Hiking: Full Moon & Meditation

Lets_Go_hiking_May.pngPlease read the entire description:

"From 1956 to 1968--long before perestroika or the dawn of Russian elections--a tiny knob of dirt 1,950 feet above the Pacific Ocean, between the San Fernando Valley and Brentwood, was the last line of defense to protect Los Angeles and its teeming aerospace factories from Soviet bombers.It was there, on a hot and dusty spot that Pentagon planners had deemed the highest in the city, that a team of U.S. Army missile control specialists manned radar towers that kept constant watch over the city's northern and western horizons, on alert for the apocalypse.  Today, historians, hikers and even dogs can tramp up newly painted and reinforced metal stairs to see what those missile fire-control officers saw 24 hours a day for a dozen years: electrifying views of the Valley and a Los Angeles that seemed far too beautiful and serene to harbor the flash of thermonuclear war."
