Huntington Library, Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens

Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens The last time we were in LA we went to the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens. It's probably the largest Botanical Garden I've ever been to. But I don't know if that's saying much, cause I've only been to about half a dozen. It's also the first Botanical Garden I've ever been to where a lot of folks were really dressed up, like in high heels, and then they went out walking for miles.

You can see a better image of this on the Huntington's website. It's Vesuvius from Portici. There's a pretty good Pompeii documentary that the put on Netflix. You can see it on youtube here. It has the butler and shittier doctor from Downton Abbey in it.
