150-Foot-Wide Smiley Face Carved In California's Hillside Gets An Illuminating Makeover
(Source: Los Angeles Times)
In 1998 Northridge gardener Sonny Klamerus carved a 150-foot-wide smiley face in the California hillside with a weed-whacker and some herbicide. This visible area off the 118 Freeway in Simi Valley, California, quickly became known as 'Happy Face Hill.' Over 16 years later, Happy Face Hill was given an upgrade by a California motorist named Steve Apostolof and some friends, who added $100 worth of solar lights so this welcoming visage could be visible round the clock. Although the area is slated for development, there are promises to keep things status quo in order to keep motorists smiling along with this local landmark day or night.
