La Brea Tar Pits

The La Brea Tar Pits is somewhere I have always wanted to visit but all my times in LA, I have never had the opportunity until today.

It was a sunny afternoon on Wiltshire Boulevard and the park was full of a lot of families. It was interesting to hear about the history of the area and how it came to be, even though there was a lot of chances that it would have been lost to progress.

Nearby, even more fossils have been found while workers were excavating for a new car park. The most famous find in that area is “Zed” the mammoth.

After spending a couple of hours there and a couple of caches as well it was a 60km trip down to my hotel at Placentia. This took 2 hours as the I-5 was a car park for most of the way. Gave plenty of opportunity to check emails and twitter as well. 🙂

Camping for the next 2 days at the Residence Inn.

Caches found today:

GCPFPG – The La Brea Tar Pits
