Excellent, great picture Tom.

I spent a superb afternoon there in 2001. Great view over the city. Wonderful place.
There is a monument with bust of James Dean there now.

I have never visited there without seeing someone doing the "James Dean Re-enactment Rag" - posing, and on occasion even speaking lines from the movie, altho usually from the wrong scenes. One day I was there and Japanese tourists were clustered up there communing with the spirit of Dean, doing an impromptu "gang fight"; later that year I was in Philly at the Art Museum, and damned if a herd of Japanese tourists wasn't lined up to stand in Rocky Balboa's shoes on the steps!
