Movie synopsis:
"Larry Sparks is an angry Republican. Frustrated by the antics of his own political party, he vents his anger in chat rooms and web logs. After being warned by federal agents to cease his activities, Larry decides to launch a one-man campaign against right-wing politics, starting with a satirical community play in which George Bush must defend his life and career to see if he can enter heaven."

Directions  Take the 210 Freeway and exit on La Tuna Canyon Rd. Hostetter Fire Road is located just south of the 210 freeway.

The Good  On a clear day, you may catch a view of Santa Catalina island.

Where  North of Burbank. on the north side of the Verdugo Mountains. East of the 5 Freeway, and actually almost touching the 210 Freeway

Notes  This is a nice little mountain, perfectly positioned to take in sweeping panoramic view of whole LA and San Gabriel.
