We decided we should go to a museum, or an educational day out.
We had heard a lot about La Brea Tar Pits when we lived in Pasadena 2011-2014. However, we never actually went.
We decided our trip back was a good enough reason to go.
We got there and the smell was great, it
smelt like road tar but it was asphalt.
Above it’s bubbling.
We found out that it had been discovered when a company was looking for oil in Los Angeles weken they drilled they found many skeletons from roughly 40-10,000 years ago.
I was amazed at the time period as I always thought of Mastodons as being the same age as dinosaurs. But they weren’t.
After we’d been on a majority of the tour our lovely guide took us to the original area where they had been taking tourists to prior to the other Pits being opened.
You could still see an animal skull.
We had a great day and is recommend anyone goes to it.
