So I drive around to find a place to park. I find a parking lot about a mile away, at some park, and then I walk through the wash for a mile. That probably took an hour. But I finally get there.
On a first glance, things are awesomer than I even expected. There's all these crane things with little catwalks on them.
I pretty much only have pictures of this thing, because soon after this, I saw another person. There was a guy standing near what appeared to be a cement mixer at the "front" of the site. I saw him from the back, so he may have not seen me, but I decided to not stick around much longer.
Across from the wash, there was some other cool, but less significant, junk. Here's a really old car.
Then I walked back to the park. On the way, I noticed someone had parked their sedan on the edge of the wash. I'm pretty sure it wasn't there when I arrived. It creeped me out a bit.
When I leave the parking lot at the park, a police car pulls in. Also creepy.
I guess I'm just really paranoid, but I keep thinking people suspect me for doing "bad things" whenever I'm outside. That's pretty much how I always feel when I go out to do movie stuff. Ugh.
When I got home, I decided to look it up on Google maps again. Then I checked Bing's maps, with the "birds-eye view" function. The pics on birds-eye view are definitely outdated. The landfill was definitely a lot more active than it is now. That could be a good thing. I'll continue doing research. Next time I should just read what the sign says at the front of the site.
