Not feeling very inspired or original this week, dear Corner View readers!
I'm pretty much an open book. I don't like to keep secrets.

So I was thinking about this post in terms of Los Angeles. I couldn't really think of anything about the city that a zillion people don't know about already.
The best kept secret of Los Angeles is that if you drive a few hours in any direction from the city, you are going to encounter dramatic views, vast differences in climate, and some of my favorite places to visit...like Death Valley, Desert Hot Springs, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree, Paso Robles, Cambria, Big Sur...can you tell I wish I had a vacation coming up?
