Day 63: La Brea tar pits

Fake Columbian Mammoth raft that sways too and forth in the breeze.

We took a quick trip to the world's greatest deposit of tar-soaked ancient mammal fossils, and were quite surprised to see and smell tar still bubbling up in the middle of Los Angeles.  Having got up at 4:30 am California time, we were a bit too tired to fully appreciate it.


  1. Really enjoying your daily posts; what a fantastic adventure you're having! This one in particular made me smile as I just "virtually" visited these same tar pits this morning by way of the computer game L.A. Noire.
