Walking the Entirety of Wilshire in less than 10 Minutes

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Tobias Wacker has uploaded just one video on YouTube, but it's a dandy. Walking from One Wilshire to the Santa Monica Beach is 16 miles and Tobias took a picture every 10 steps. As you see he isn't afraid to cross Wishire now and then and he has a bit of fun by checking out cool things like tall buildings, the La Brea Tar Pits, and the dancing guy at Westside Rentals.

Definitely something to think about the next time Mike of Franklin Ave. hosts another Wilshire Walk, except maybe a picture every 5 steps? We'd hate to be the ones who have to download and then upload each pic, but we guess that's what interns are for.

Anyways, thanks Tobias. How about Vermont Ave., next time, from Griffith Park to Mexico?
