La Brea Tar Pits

The Urbanskis (our next door neighbors) took us all on an adventure to the La Brea Tar Pits. I learned a lot at this fascinating place that i have not visited since I was little. In the middle of Los Angeles, in fact, right on miracle mile, asphalt still bubbles up from the ground. Archeologists are working, even now, to extract fossils from the sticky black substance. Mammoths, mastodons, horses, Sabre-toothed cats, and direwolves all roamed the area long before concrete came around.

Like pulling the sword from the stone, try to lift the metal poles from Tar and see what the animals were facing.

Then we explored the current Tar Pits.

what a fun and interesting day!
