There is actually water in the river.ispoke said:Next thing to catch me eye is Franks, the local coffee shop and a great sign.
Following that we cross the LA River and leave Riverside drive for the LA River bike path.
OK, I'll admit I'm new to LA and all, but that is crazy! Crazy, I tell you! This city is a trip...ispoke said:Caught a couple native river residents on film. Can you see the guy on the island? He's wearing a light colored cap and standing in the tall grass. One of scores who live on the grassy islands (except when it rains and the river swells).
SoCal is a haven for seedy dudes! But seriously, this is my third year on the LA River path and I normally only see one or two seedy individuals, and they're usually standing in the grass kind of looking off into the distance. Heck, there's one guy who sleeps under a tarp near the Los Feliz junction and I swear his bike could be a Rivendell. '80s steel lugged frame, way too large, upright swan handlebars and a springy old leather seat.northcoast said:...I have some friends that ride the LA River Bike Path that far north and say that it's a little scetchy sometimes (eg.- groups of seedy dudes hanging out on the path). Is that true? Thanks,
