Adventures at the Spiral Staircase

This is one of my all time favorite places, the intersection of two freeways over railroad tracks AND the Los Angeles River

Right next to the intersection of the I5 North and the 110 (first freeway ever built), there is a staircase to permit people to escape the higher freeway by foot, to the lower freeway and eventually to a street.

It's better seen than described but I would like to do a book about this place sometime.
