Burbank Thru Toluca Lake to Universal City- an URBAN SHLEP

So every Sunday Morning, bright and early at 4:30am- I take an Urban Hike.  I wish I could say it for exercise purposes only but it’s actually out of necessity because my car broke down and the bus doesn’t run in the Burbank, Ca area at 4:30am. I leave work and off I go to pick up the bus at Universal City Station which happens to be about 3 miles away. Fun Stuff after 8 and a half hours at work BUT it is what it is, soooo- we walk!

    Obviously, I took pictures when it was a dark and stormy morning!
    I added a few of the things I see along the way just for fun! I really do enjoy the walk even though it can be tiring after a long day at work…It’s very quiet, calm and serene.
    I also have to add that I’m SO THANKFUL that I CAN do this walk without feeling like I want to pass out or having to sit every 5 minutes. I count my blessing EVERY DAY!
