A Saturday Excursion Back in Time

Today, at the invitation of Beth, several family members took a little California history field trip. We visited Pio Pico State Park, slated to be closed, a casualty of the state budget cuts.

Then we went to see a plaque on a rock marking the sight of a very important battle in the quest for the United States of America to take the area from Mexico. The battle was the Battle of Rio San Gabriel, and the marker is on the corner of Washington Blvd. and Bluff on the east side of Montebello.

For additional drama and information, see:

It was an interesting start to the day. Members of the group included Beth, Brianna, Doris, Glen, & Cindi. Beth and Brianna had this planned. Glen and Cindi joined in rather spontaneously.
