"In the 1930s Nazi sympathizers built a refuge in the Pacific Palisades. Herr Schmidt, Winona and Norman Stephens, and their followers occupied a self-contained stronghold in what is now Rustic Canyon between Sullivan Ridge and Will Rodgers State Park. The ranch was designed to serve as a hold out for fans of the Third Reich waiting for America to fall to the Nazis. Instead, the ranch was raided by U.S. authorities and closed in 1941. The abandoned buildings were transformed into an artists’ colony in the 60s and 70s, but were abandoned after the Mandeville Canyon Fire in 1978. "
Monica and I went to this place in the Pacific Palisades that we had read about. Such a strange story behind it. I wonder how many gems like this exist in this city. I'm sure there are some weird abandoned hippy communes out there somewhere. I love weird California.
"Must be at the bottom of these 500 plus stairs." It was in fact at the bottom of over 500 step concrete steps.
From what I could tell, the structure appears to have been graffitied by someone. Is "graffitied" a real word?
This is when Monica spotted a dead body. She went under the building and didn't even get killed.
This spider has a nice butt.
Modest houses all around. There's Michael Bolton.
Killer day. No traffic getting there and barely anyone on the trail. Where is everyone in LA?
Thanks to my instafriend for the tip on this place.
Where is it? Well... email me and I will tell you. The person who tipped me off was not wanting to advertise it to the world, so I'm doing the same. Despite its stories blasted all over the internets, the trail wasn't over crowded. This is unlike most of the places we hike closer to the city of LA
