    What a beautiful video! Makes me want to hop on my imaginary bike and make my way over to the LA river. :)

    I love all things that support the LA River.

    That was wonderful! And got me thinking, as it should do.

    When I lived on the Mississippi gulf coast, I commuted 36 mi. to work and crossed 4 rivers each day. That stretch of I-10 is carved through the woods, from outside New Orleans to the Florida panhandle. Anyone living along that coast or near the Mississippi River and all it's many tributaries, can't help but become river conscious.

    When I first moved to L.A., what little I could see of the river, was just a "cement river" to me, kinda like the Beverly Hillbillies', "cement pond."

    Mark Twain warned about messin' around with the rivers.

    It's an all out rescue mission now.
    Save a river, save Life.
    Thank you, to all the Life Savers of the Los Angeles River!

    I live in LA, and I'm so excited for this! I didn't even know there was a river when I first moved here. Now you can kayak down parts of it :)
