What Lies Beneath – (The Laurel Tavern/Log Cabin)

Okay! The answer is after the jump! :)    

We’re heading to Laurel Canyon for this week’s little geographical history test! Allright, maaaan!

Just to remind you, here’s how this little game goes… we’ll show you a spot on a google map (see below). We’re thinking of something notable that once happened or existed within a block or two of the point on that map. Within 24 hours we’ll give you the full details… but as always, we’re going to give you a fair amount of time to guess what we’re referring to first. We encourage you not to cheat by googling the address and if you know the answer right away please try not to announce it too quickly and ruin the game for the people who don’t.    

And since you guys like hints, here’s your hint for this one… THE CORRECT ANSWER HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HARRY HOUDINI!!! Nope, sorry. Nice try but that would’ve been waaaay too easy. :)

Ready? OKAY! :)

We’re heading a little outside of the city today and down to Long Beach! The rest of the game works the same as usual… below is a spot on a google map.

******************
It’s that time of the week again! :)

Just to refresh your memory, here’s how this little game goes… first we’ll show you a spot on a google map (see below).

We encourage you not to cheat by googling the address (but we know how impatient some of you are). If you know the answer right away please try not to announce it too quickly and ruin the game for the people who don’t.
And no hints this time! BWAHHAHAHAHAAAHHHH!!! < ---(That's our evil laugh.)

ADVENTURE – The Giving Tree

Fellow HLA Facebook fan Taylor says she has a fun little treat for you twirling canyon explorers out there…

CLUES AND DIRECTIONS:

    givingtree

  1. Off of Franklin turn left on Canyon Rd. or right depending on which way you come from….
  2. Follow Canyon Rd. until you reach the gates to Griffith Park. Keep driving until you can’t drive any further…
  3. Start walking the trail…
  4. You are on the right track when you pass the dragon on the right. Kudos to the artist…
  5. Keep on past the potential kickball field on the right…
  6. Ahead you will see a small brook…I don’t recommend drinking the water.
  7. Follow the path as it winds around…if you look up you will see the Hollywood sign…admire.
  8. Keep walking but go slow because the view is quite pretty.
  9. The trail seems open at this point but keep going… just as you go around another corner on the right, on the side of the cliffs edge you will see a tree…the branches are overgrown and touch the trails path. Look for the red box and you have reached “The Giving Tree”…
  10. Give it your thoughts and prayers or anything laying heavy on your heart. Then twirl… Peace and Love! Taylor ;-)

Just remember… the joy is in the journey, not the destination. We haven’t followed the directions to find the box ourselves, so please let us know what you find if you do! (And whatever you do, *please* don’t litter along the way.)

Happy Saturday, folks!

Just to refresh your memory, here’s how it goes… first we’ll show you a spot on a google map (see below).

Within 24 hours we’ll give you the full details… but as before, we’re going to give you a little time to guess what we’re referring to first. Again, don’t you dare go cheating by googling the address. Cheaters never prosper.

QUIZ – What Lies Beneath (Home/Deathplace of Old West Legend Wyatt Earp)

A few of you got it! Nice shootin’, Tex! The answer is after the jump. :)

quiz Okay, we’re going to try a new game. Here’s how it goes… first we’ll give you a location (see below). Now, it’s been widely stated that something (or someone) *very* notable once happened (or lived) within yards of the exact point shown on the map.

Within 24 hours we’ll give you the full details… but just to be sadistic and challenge you, we’re going to give you a little time to guess what we’re referring to first. And don’t you dare go cheating by googling the address. That’s not fair!!!

Happy guessing!
