La Brea Tar Pits

We took another family trip to the L.A. Temple and spent the night in the temple apartments. Before joining our Ward (church congregation) on Saturday afternoon for baptisms and a Primary activity allowing the children to tour around the grounds and visitor’s center, we went to the Page Museum and the La Brea Tar Pits on Wilshire Boulevard. It’s a paleontological wonderland in the middle of the concrete jungle that is Los Angeles. Millions of years old pits of tar with thousands and thousands of dinosaur bones they’re still digging up out of the muck.

I hadn’t been there since I was about ten on a class field trip and Colin and the kids had never been so we thought we’d meander around.

It was overcast, but warm that morning. We walked around the grounds and checked out the pools of tar and then ventured inside the museum to look at all the fossils.
