To gain a better understanding of our surroundings, we checked out the Eastern California Museum in small-town Independence. This yard-full of equipment was used in the construction of the L.A. Aqueduct. The equipment is in remarkable shape for its age, thanks to a dry climate. With hot summers, biting-cold winters and nearly constant wind, it took some pretty tough people to build the Aqueduct.
