Ernest E. Debs Park

Another chilly 75f/24c degree Los Angeles winter day made for a good opportunity to explore a local and not-so well east-side urban oasis yesterday, Ernest E. Debs park, home also to the Audobon environmental education center (which as a side note is totally off the grid, self-sufficient in energy, water, waste etc). Only a 15 minute ride from home, I can escape the city and gain a 360 degree perspective on the megalopolis. Yesterday it was possible to see to the ocean, to the snow covered mountains, and across the entirety of L.A. city (not quite the whole county).

The lake at the top of the park, I think I'll be spending most of my summer here

Looking south to downtown (and beyond that to the ocean)
