Wildwood Canyon Park is a short, but very steep climb up a narrow ridge great for beginner and seasoned hikers alike. This is a great hike for residents of downtown L.A. and the Valley. The Vital Link trail ascends the ridge, with great views on both sides.

At the top, relax and enjoy some well-earned views of the San Gabriel Mountains to the north and Burbank to the south. This is a great place to take pictures and have a final rest and refuel for the ascent.

Mr. Events.

For the first time in Los Angeles—The California Science Center in cooperation with the Israel Antiquities Authority is proud to present the largest Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition ever mounted outside of Israel, featuring over 600 ancient artifacts on display. This special exhibition explores the science and significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls, manuscripts written and hidden in caves 2000 years ago and not discovered until 1947. The exhibition also features sections from 10 selections of the Dead Sea Scrolls, more than half never seen before in the U.S., including parts of the oldest known copies of the Hebrew Bible, also known as the Old Testament.

Through multimedia exhibits, guests will explore the science and technology used to date these ancient manuscripts, decipher them, and preserve them for future generations. Additional highlights include a three-ton stone from Jerusalem’s Western Wall, limestone capitals from the first temple period (1000-586 BCE), ossuaries from the early Roman period, and an ancient signature preserved for millennia on the Archer Seal.

Interactive exhibits invite guests to experience the science of the Scrolls in a new way. Practice writing in Hebrew and Greek, feel the difference between papyrus and parchment, explore how carbon dating helps scientists determine the age of the Scrolls, and reconstruct a ceramic pot by matching fragments like restorers do.

The Graffiti Run

March 2, 2015 — Leave a comment

The Graffiti Run will be the most colorful day of your life. Bold statement, we know (especially if you lived through the 70′s or ever owned a hyper-color t-shirt), but just hear us out. First off, they use the term “run” loosely at the Graffiti Run. Their 5K course is more about having a blast with friends and family than it is about busting out four-minute miles. So feel free to run, walk, dance, crawl, roll, piggy-back ride, or summersault your way through the color madness.

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 10.25.40 AM

Secondly, the no-six-pack-required course means the Graffiti fun Run is for EVERYONE (unless you hate color or smiling, then you are not invited). You will see green grand-parents next to pink college students. Yellow marathon runners alongside blue children. Orange moms next to purple unicorns. They only have two rules: you must get absolutely drenched in color and have an amazing time.
