State of the Arroyo

I'm disappointed because I got home too late to attend the "State of the City" event this evening at the Rose Bowl. Not just at the stadium. Inside the new locker room complex. A female doesn't get a chance to visit those rooms very often unless she's a sportswriter or a cleaning lady.

Mayor Bill Bogaard will be speaking tonight, so I've decided to comfort myself with this photo, which was a contender for yesterday's post. I had the pleasure of being introduced to the mayor at the event for the Central Arroyo Stream Restoration. While Andy Byrne, Program Manager of the Arroyo Seco Foundation, made the introductions, Mayor Bogaard waited to go on and I snapped this picture.

The bridge in the background is not the Colorado Street Bridge. (That's behind the mayor in this photo.) The one you see here is merely an onramp to the westbound 134 freeway. If you think our freeways are pretty, wait until you see our alleys.

On ramp huh? Shame you missed going inside the locker room complex. That would have been a neat tour.
