In the PArk


In Los Angeles, in the big bad city, there is a really great park. Well, it actually used to be a resevoir back in the old days. Then the dam broke and tons of water cascaded down La Brea Avenue, and took out some houses and maybe even killed a couple of people. Its been turned into a county park, and it is a good place to take a walk or have a family outing. I took this picture in the grass after the rain last weekend. The place was humming with snails on the move, a veritable stampede of slugs and their houses. Here you can see a few scampering away at high speed. Look at the skid marks on the ground. I don't know where they were going, but I'm glad I didn't get in their way.
