Signal Hill has long been a communications point on the Southern California landscape. In an earlier era, Native Americans signaled their brethren with fire and smoke, from Santa Catalina Island to the foothills of the Coastal Range bordering what is now L.A.
Today the signals are electronic, connecting us--at the click of a mouse--to vast, new worldwide networks.

Another Pleasant Encounter on Signal Hill
Glen and Mary pose in front of a stone pillar manufactured to look like old stone walls of the Denny Mansion, on the hill before oil was discovered in the early 1920s.
Mary--a terrier-chihuahua mix--gets her way; taken out daily for a walk on the Hilltop. Glen is very patient with her.
