A morning, 9 to noon, field trip visiting the Los Angeles River. For Orchid and I, this is a favorite. Our destination is the North Atwater Park.

Chevy Chase Drive, once it makes that final right hand swoop, dead ends. As that right hand swoop begins, the park itself is on the left. On this map, almost exactly in the blue pin there is a parking lot where we will meet at 9:00 AM.
This is a good field trip for a camera, and as usual plenty of water and layers of clothing. Wear walking shoes and we'll proceed south from the parking lot along the North Atwater Creek on down to the river proper and back again. Not far and we will amble along without urgency.
Some background data on the site is available online, here.
And some photos from the day it opened for a little prespective.
We meet next on Monday the 12th be ready to take notes. I have not found a satisfactory way of putting the data into a format that I can easily reproduce, so your notes are all you'll have.
Hope you will enjoy this trip and hope you're enjoying the class.
