A Day in Pasadena

The weather was nice on Saturday. Since we usually don’t have a long workout on Saturdays. We often plan to visit some places locally during this pandemic crisis. After all, we have being stayed at home too long. It is good to just scroll around local towns and get some inspiration, So far, we have visited DTLA China Town and Little Tokyo, so we decided to visit Pasadena this Saturday.

A little bit information about Pasadena here. Pasadena is a city in California, northeast of downtown Los Angeles. In the center, Old Pasadena is a shopping and dining district known for its Victorian and art deco buildings. The strikingly modern Norton Simon Museum houses notable European and Asian art, plus a sculpture garden. The Rose Bowl is a sports stadium known for hosting the Rose Bowl Game, an annual college football clash usually held on January 1. Read on to enjoy the local journey with us.

We had a scenic drive around Arroyo Seco area. The Arroyo Seco Bridge is pretty amazing. With its majestic arches rising 150 feet above the deeply cut Arroyo Seco, the Bridge was proclaimed the highest concrete bridge in the world upon completion in 1913.  The bridge impressed travelers from the day it opened.  Until then, the crossing of the Arroyo Seco required horses and wagons to descend the steep eastern slope, cross a small bridge over the stream, and then climb the west bank through Eagle Rock Pass.  Given this harsh topography, the Colorado Street Bridge proved a challenge to design and build.  Solid footing eluded engineers in the seasonally wet arroyo bed. Hopefully, we are able to get a better video when we drive through again. In case, you want to take a “country-in-the-city walk, check out this article from LA Times.

Then we stopped by ArtCenter of College Design to take a photo with its famous Mural wall outside of the campus.
