La Brea Tar Pits

Vi styrde kosan till gratis entré på LACMA samt närliggande La Brea Tar Pits. La Brea Tar Pits är en stor park med asfalts sjöar där de ställt upp masonit mamutar. Väldigt exotiskt. Om ni inte tror oss hänvisar jag till wikipedia, källan till all sanning!

The La Brea Tar Pits (or Rancho La Brea Tar Pits) are a famous cluster of tar pits located in Hancock Park in the urban heart of Los Angeles, California, United States. Asphalt or tar (which in Spanish is la brea, see below) has seeped up from the ground in this area for tens of thousands of years. The tar is often covered with water, which attracts wildlife. Over the centuries, the bones of animals that died in the pits sank into the tar and were preserved. The George C. Page museum is dedicated to researching the tar pits and displaying specimens from them.
