Los Encinos State Historical Park

Here's another idillic photo from Los Encinos of the California Bell. It's from a photo series on my AngelCityArt website.

Here's the copy that goes with my photo of the California Bell.

The California Bell denotes this as as stop on Old Spain's King's Road (El Camino Real).  Ventura Blvd. was part of this old indian footpath followed by Portola and other Spanish explorers on their way north. The road starts in San Diego and ends in San Francisco.  I found an interesting site about the California Bells atCAHighways.

The next time you're on a trip along the 101, it might be a fun idea to see how many State Bells you can find along the way!

You know, I recall seeing a story about Los Angeles City having money to buy park space...  I'll have to look for that link for you.   Or, maybe we can rustle up money in a bake sale to save the park.

For a nice article about another threatened California historical landmark check out Justin Hampton's piece on Pio Pico State Historic Park in LA Weekly here...
