Just returned from LA and Palm Springs and one of the stops we made was the Page Museum in LA.  This is a museum built on the old rancho of La Brea and became known as the La Brea Tar Pits.  They have been doing digs there since the 1920’s and have a wonderful collection in the museum.  They have a higher number of fossils due to the rapid coverage of the asphalt tar.  If your in the area do stop in and see nature at work.  This history lesson started about 38,000 years ago.

The center animal is a Yesterday Camel.

They have a Columbian Mammoth, many bird, found 1 person plus many other animals.  It is a fascinating place.

Had to get to work when I returned – did my Whisper Challenge plus a couple of pieces that I have been playing with.
