Over the road, in L.A.
I think this is the L.A. river and maybe the 710 freeway? I'm not sure if the L.A. river even goes that way, but it does look like that freeway is headed toward a port - Long Beach or L.A.? If you're wondering why that river - and, yes, it really is a river - looks so weird it's because some genius in the middle of last century thought it'd be a good idea to cement the river in. Why? I have no clue. It may look like nothing much here in the summer, but there are plenty of idiots who, during the January/February rain storms, decide that body-boarding in the rapids of a concrete river is a good idea.
