Tracing the Remains of Busch Gardens – 1/28/18

midwinterinbuschgardensSunday January 28, 2018 | 2PM
Meet at 2PM at the southwest corner of Arlington & Orange Grove.

Pasadena’s Busch Gardens is long gone, but thanks to a great article/item at KCET recently, we are going to take a walk to see the hidden remains of this piece of our city’s history. This won’t be a long or very vigorous walk, just a chance to explore and walk and talk!

Update: 

From Petrea Burchard: “Hi everyone. In 2010 I wrote a series of posts about some of the sights in Busch Gardens. These were on the blog where I posted every day for about 5.5 years, Pasadena Daily Photo.”

Caltech Ramble – Photos

Photo Credits: Linda Delez, Patrice Harkins, & a random nice lady who used my phone for the group photo.

What a wonderful morning shared with 18 human walkers plus 2 dogs! I enjoyed strolling around the Caltech campus with everyone. I worked there for many years and it was a pleasure to be able to see the campus through the eyes of people who are not quite so used to the pretty place I used to work. We admired the architecture and landscaping, smelled the flowers (SO many flowers!), said hello to the turtles, and got to know each other. We had quite a few new walkers this week, was so great to meet you all!

For those who asked, they do have guided architectural tours of the campus. From the Caltech website:

Community tours are given on the fourth Thursday of each month at 10:30 a.m., beginning at the entrance to the Athenaeum at 551 South Hill Avenue. Tours last from 1½ to 2 hours and are open to all members of the Caltech community and visitors to the campus.

Thank you for walking with me!!

Meet at NW corner of Del Mar & Hill
(in front of Knox Presbyterian Church)

About 1.5 miles. We will walk at an easy pace and take in the beauty of Caltech’s architecture and landscaping. Suitable for everyone – especially those just starting out in walking for fitness.


*If anyone is looking for a longer walk Saturday AM, I will be setting out from Del Mar & Sierra Madre – SW corner – at about 8:45. Comment here if you want to meet up! This will add another ~3 miles (RT) to the route, and I will be taking this section at a faster pace. -S
