Many Rivers To Go

Cementrafied, with steep sides the Los Angeles River runs slow, shallow and wide. A thirsty creek-sized river until the big rains come down and the hills and valley drain. The little river becomes a lethal force to be feared and avoided.

The longest river in this country is the Missouri, a hungry river that eats at its banks, giving the river its nickname – Big Muddy. Every day is Thanksgiving for that river.

In Los Angeles they keep their river where it belongs, no matter how out of control it gets.
