The Mural-View SLO-MO: Cruisin' Downtown L.A.'s U.S. 101

Downtown L.A.'s Friday afternoon rush hour crush-creep along what is arguably the most solidly-congested stretch  of U.S. 101 provides us this special advantage:  the chance to enjoy the playful detail in lively children's faces and the parade of hearts and cars that we would otherwise zoom by too fast to see.

Restored in 2012 and 2013 with many of the other 8 murals from the 1984 Olympics, their lightness and charm shift our minds toward weekend plans and play.
