Watts Towers

After 4 years of intending to visit, I finally made it to the Watts Towers. Sadly they are closed to the public until March 2009, and one tower was completely enveloped in scaffolding, with the site being surrounded by a fence. Still it was great to see them. The towers were completely built by hand over the span of around 30 years, by one guy, Simon Rodia, mostly using reclaimed items. Thankfully they have been preserved for people to see
