California / Universal Studios
These pictures were taken in California while I was on a business trip Spring 2001. I was unable to find a parking spot in Hollywood, so I missed the walk of fame, but I got some other good shots.

This is the view out the window in the hotel.

These shots were all taken at the LaBrea tarpits. You can actually see natural gas bubbling up through the pools; and the water is coated with a thin layer of oil. The air here smells like fresh asphalt, and in many places tar has collected under the grass.
