Just in case you’re not planning on attending this Sunday’s IAAL•MAF “Serenity Now: An L.A. River ODDysey” bike ride from Griffith Park to Cypress Park and back that I’ve been planning, you’re gonna miss out on an a sincere attempt at and edutaining experience.

I’m so into getting some fact-based talking points down for the roll that I biked over to the library today and checked out “The Los Angeles River: It’s Life, Death, and Possible Rebirth” by Blake Gumprecht (1999, John Hopkins University Press).

Little did I know the wonderful and entire and definitive volume is online here if you want to check it out for yourself.
