I had heard and seen many of the great things Griffith Park had to offer, and I knew there were trains to ride. Naturally a trip was needed. So off we went.
The train took us on a mile loop, and Marcus was captivated the entire time. The quick loop was great, but we weren't ready to head back home.
While on the train we spotted ponies to ride nearby. When asking Marcus if he wanted to ride the ponies he excitedly agreed to saddle up.
(see Marcus' expression above). His only horse riding experience had been on those carnival ponies that walk around and 'round in circles. These ponies gave a bit of a different ride.
(there was an option to ride faster horses, but we thought we'd better ease into everything). After the first lap around the track Marcus looked like an old pro.
Our last Griffith stop was a ride on the carousel.
Griffith Park experience was complete and totally successful. We had one very happy little man.
I had no idea just how much Griffith had (has!) to offer, and I've already got a few more trips to check out even more at the park this summer!
The start to the #macke2015summerbucketlist sure was an awesome one.
