Of course, by this morning, I knew that Carmageddon was nothing to be feared. However, my starting point was so close to Laurel Canyon that no other route made sense and I figured that everyone had heard of Laurel Canyon as a way to get from the Valley to the City, so I left some extra time.
It's a good thing I did, because my plan was that if I got there early I'd go to Urth Caffe for one of their fabulous Caffe Lattes. I'd never been there on a Sunday morning before and I hadn't figured on the wait. Honestly, I waited longer on line for my coffee than it took me to drive Laurel Canyon. And they charge $3.50 for a small latte. But, it was worth every dime. Mmm.
