The Trail of Thin Mints

There is a housing area in Glendale where all the roads end in one of a dozen hubs.  The hubs are circular roundabouts with 6 short roads branching off, each leading to a cul-de-sac.


Not only is it like trying to navigate through a crop circle, the hub and the corresponding roads all have the same name. Six options for Larkspur Circle and you just get to weave in and out until you hit the right one.  So after a few extensive tours of the wrong circles, and a few “Hi, how are you?”  I finally hit upon the right house.  


My suggestion for correct arrival in the future involves large dogs with small flasks around their necks or setting up a trail of Girl Scout Thin Mints.
