Mammoth on the Hill

Have you ever been driving to Riverside and suddenly begin daydreaming? Soon the road turns into a prehistoric river and you're imagining all the cars as boats finding their way through the savage jungle. You avoid each one as you make your way to a safe place. As you look for a suitable docking location, you notice saber tooth tigers and velociraptors on the shore. Luckily, you have your trusty rifle to protect you. But before you land, you notice a large, angry Mammoth charging towards you. Your little rifle will do you no good as the massive beast approaches. You aim, close your eyes, and pray for the best. . .

Well, me neither. But I did see this cool statue of a Mammoth on top of this hill. It's nice to see unique and unusual artwork in Southern California. There were other statues too. Dinosaurs to be exact. I fact, the statues are part of the Jurupa Mountains Cultural Center. a museum that specializes in teaching about Archeology, Paleontology, and Geology.
