Down the Arroyo Seco

Down the Arroyo Seco Professional Review and Guide

"The Spanish colonists who christened Arroyo Seco (“dry creek”) evidently observed only its lower end—a hot, boulder-strewn wash emptying into the Los Angeles River. Upstream, inside the confines of the San Gabriels, Arroyo Seco is a scenic treasure—all the more astounding when you consider that its exquisite sylvan glens and sparkling brook lie just 12–15 miles from L.A.’s city center."
