Last weekend, I encountered two groups of tourists on the Corralitas Public Staircase. One group was following a route from Silver Lake resident, Charles Fleming's book, Secret Stairs, A Walking Guide to the Historic Staircases of Los Angeles.

The second group (pictured above), outfitted with backpacks and climbing poles, was training for the Grand Canyon.
