Murphy's Ranch was Part 2 of the trip. This trip was too crazy and jam packed that we didn't get closer to what Murphy's Ranch truly is, but we will tell you the way that we took.
If you don't know, Murphy's Ranch is a place that was held by people who followed the Third Reich in the 1930s. They established a ground where they can hide out until "America fell to the Nazis," which didn't happen. In 1941, the American government found out and raided that place, aka killed everyone there. From then on, it became a nice place to go trailing or just pure artestry.
So when you pull up, you realize that you are going through a residential area, but it's kinda weird at first, but you will eventually figure out where to go. As you walk down the hill, you will will see a fork in the path, and go through the dirt. Once you do, you will see this:
For Jade's Birthday, we decided to go on an adventure that was included on the list, made by JOSHMC of California Through My Lens. We plan on finishing the rest of the list with the many counties, but we just thought we can try the Los Angeles County first, since it's so convenient for us. We arranged it according to which one is closer to furthest out, and so, first in line was the Watt's Towers.
Watt's Towers has been part of the Los Angeles culture for a while. Simon Rodia built this wonderful piece of art for the LA community to contribute his own works. There is a lot more history behind it, but if you decide to take the tour, they will explain everything there for you. Instead of hearing it from me, it's best for you to check it out. The tours are given every 30 minutes from 10:30 to 4 on Saturdays. It's only $7, which includes the tour and actually being able to go inside the gated area. You can admire from the outside for free, but I'm not going to lie, it's better to see it from the inside and getting the more personal story from the workers there. James gave us a tour of the art work and explained some things that you wouldn't have found out online or in some book, so check it out. [Below are a bunch of pictures that we took]
After our adventure here, Part 2 Continues...
So I hung out with these dope peepz: Kathy and Jerry, and later that night, Jade. Just a heads up, I probably left out a bunch of stuff that we did, but this is what I remember, and what we actually did:
They came out to hang in Carson/LA for once, since they from Temecula/San Diego and we wanted to head out to the TOMS Warehouse Sale the next day.
What we did....hm. Oh yeah, that's right. We did nothing! Lol.
Well, Kathy baked these delicious morsels below:
You know Disneyland is always fun, especially when you're with family. Well, I went with my Ate Michelle and lil' cousin, Mikaila.
This trip was quite fun. Spent the whole damn day there from 10 minutes before 8 to 10ish, I believe, and I woke up at 5am -__- because I was just too excited.
Tell me why, it was super crackin' right when we got there. To be honest, I felt like we would have been one of the few people awake at this time, but NOOOOOOO, some people like to go to Disneyland that freakin' early... but we got bueno parking on the first floor of the parking structure, which was mighty nice. :)
Right when we got there, we decided to go to California Adventure because my cousin hasn't been to Cars Land yet, and so we go. Since we were that early, might as well get the Radiator Springs Racers FAST PASS.
