February of 2016, the LA River Trek biked and hiked along the entirety of the Los Angeles River, from the ocean in Long Beach out into the mountainous limits of the watershed, looking to define nature within an urban watershed.
Now, for the first time, you can read what we found.
Upstream: A Written and Photographic Journey up the Los Angeles River, by Tamara Lang and Glenn Lewis, carries the reader up the Los Angeles River from the ocean to the mountains, using the natural flow of the Los Angeles Watershed to frame the city within the wider story of water in motion. Using rich photography and poetically sensitive narrative, Upstream asks the question of what nature means within the banks of an urban river, letting the space of the river answer for itself.
Upstream can be found on Amazon in print and as an ebook.
