The muds coming down on US1
Wouldn’t you know it, we happen to be in Los Angeles while they are getting the most rain they have received in recorded history. We made the best of it and yes, there were a few breaks in the downpours. During our stay we went to Disneyland, the new Disney park California Adventure, and much more. It was interesting (and a little scary) to drive along some of the roads that are having mudslides. Another cool place to visit right in downtown LA is the La Brea Tar Pits which has more Ice Age mammal bones discovered there than anywhere else on earth. Saber toothed cats, Columbian mammoths, giant sloth’s, the American lion (about 4 times the size of the African lion), condors etc where found by the hundreds in the quick-sand like slurry of tar. This weekend is the academy awards in Hollywood, we didn’t see any actors but plenty of evidence of the upcoming event
