Sunday, May 18, 2014....
Morning after breakfast at 10 am, we walked to Page Museum and La Brea Tar Pits.
The La Brea Tar Pits (or Rancho La Brea Tar Pits) are a group of tar pits around which Hancock Park was formed, in urban Los Angeles. Natural asphalt (also called asphaltum, bitumen, pitch or tar - brea in Spanish) has seeped up from the ground in this area for tens of thousands of years.

The tar is often covered with dust, leaves, or water. Over many centuries, the bones of animals that were trapped in the tar were preserved. The George C. Page Museum is dedicated to researching the tar pits and displaying specimens from the animals that died there.
PAGE MUSEUM - After Ice age excavations, creatures are brought inside the Page museum, Here best fossils are on display and can see  Paleontology in action.
