History and Historic Sites of the Valley * Then and Now Photos * Lost Crescenta * Rockhaven * Membership and Donations
In recognition of the 75th anniversary of the New Year's Flood of '34, we've put together a guided driving tour to see first hand and hear about the locations that are important to this disaster. We'll begin where the flood began, in Pickens Canyon, then caravan to 5 other significant locations in flood history. Each participant will be provided with a map and a set of historic photocopies that will enhance the talk by Art Cobery at each stop. We'll end our tour at Deukmejian Wilderness Park, where we'll have a photo display set up. We invite you to bring a picnic lunch along, and enjoy your restful snack at the end of our journey.
When: Saturday, January 31st, 10 a.m. to approx. 1 p.m.
Where: Meet at the small, unmarked park on Ocean View just above Cross Street. To get to this park (another of CV's hidden gems), go up Ocean View from Foothill. Cross St. is the first stop sign. Past Cross St., the park is on the left at the top of the "S" curve.
What to bring: This is a self-driving tour, so bring your car. There won't be much walking involved, but plan to stand for the short talks at each site. Bring a picnic lunch or snack for the end of the tour at Deukmejian Park. Other details: The tour is free and open to everyone.
