The LaBrea Tar Pits was one of the stops along our tour in Los Angeles!
It's an eerily interesting place.
They're a cluster of tar pits in LA that seep up from the
ground in an area now called Hancock park.
This tar has apparently been seeping up for tens of thousands of years
and I guess that bones of animals that were trapped in the tar have
come to the surface over the years.
It's a registered National Natural Landmark and
there is a museum that is dedicated to the study,
research and display of tar pit specimens!
