Iconic Hollywood Sign Redesigned For 2017. The Hollywood sign got a whole new look for the new year Sunday morning when it was altered to read "Hollyweed. " Of course, city officials had nothing to do with it, it was a clever prankster who somehow got up there undetected and used tarps to change make the letter transformation, scaling the sign with ladders and hanging them up over the O’s to change them to E's, Sgt. Guy Juneau of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Security Services division told the LA Times. The surveillance footage showed a man dressed in black, tactical-style gear around 3 a.m. One of the tarpaulins was decorated with a peace sign, and another with a heart. Sensors on the sign usually alert police to strange activity, but they only pick up signals around certain parts of the letters therefore it is possible to avoid them. Because Sunday was a holiday, it stuck around quite a while, enough to amuse tens of thousands of viewers in the region, many of whom posted pics of the sign on social media.

Szállásunkról busszal utazunk a Nevis-völgybe, túránk kiindulópontjára.

A Ben Nevis északi fala hírhedt hegymászó körökben, annak téli megmászása óriási kihívás. Nem véletlen, hogy itt edzenek a legjobb angol hegymászók a világ legmagasabb csúcsaira tervezett expedícióik előtt.

Alternatív kirándulás: Ha nem szeretnél hegyet mászni az alábbi programot javasoljuk neked, míg a csapat a hegy ösvényeit tapossa. Needle Rock at the Storr | Photography by Antonio Marques.
