"Meet the La Brea Tar Lake" La Brea by Martin_S.
La Brea Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 8 photos
This is the sight that greets you as you walk down from the reception center where you get you tickets and guide. You need a guide here so you won't go in and not come out, like the saber tooth tigers and others.
If you take a close look at the picture you can see a dark swath just below the horizon, that is the deeper part of the lake where nothing grows. The point where we are standing supports all sorts of green vegetation and flowers.
This is a closeup of how the tar looks. The moisture that collects in these indentations takes on the color of whatever minerals and oils that the tar has suspended in it there. Some are clear, or murky, almost grey, while some are rainbows of color.
- Pros:An amazing natural wonder.
- Cons:Make sure you don't get stuck
