Field-Trip Sunday: Found L.A.'s Hansen Dam Tour

Seen Hansen Dam from the 405 for years, never been out there. So today, as part of L.A. Common's Found L.A. day, we went out to the east Valley and checked it out. I learned the new vocabulary words earthfill dam and spillway. Lots of wildlife and some neat rec activities. We'll be back.

Brand-new ranger station; first one built in 30 years in L.A. City. Not technically open yet because, you know, bureaucracy.

The troops.

We walked up the bike path, which leads right into the top of the dam.

Rules, regulations, unfortunate graffiti.

Dam. :)
