Happy 100th to L.A. Aqueduct

Mule poster

Today marks 100 years since water started to flow through the L.A. Aqueduct from the Sierra Nevada, through the Owens Valley and Mojave Desert to the City of Angels. To commemorate the event, artist Lauren Bon of the Annenberg Foundation’s The Metabolic Studio and a team of supporters, riders and wranglers are traveling the 240 miles of aqueduct with 100 mules. A few off-season Eastern Sierra pack stations are also involved. The ride began on Oct. 18 and will end at Griffith Park in L.A.

Mule-lovers alert: The sign above is from the L.A. Equestrian Center, where there’ll be a celebration at the center’s Equidome upon the team’s arrival on Nov. 11.
