Manzanar National Historic Site

Culturally, Japanese people love nature, beauty, and harmony. In an attempt to beautify Manzanar, while surrounded by a barbed wire fence, they made little rock gardens and tried planting some vegetables and trees. I just snapped a few photos of these little rock piles and old tree stumps. Under harsh circumstances they did what they could to enhance their living environment and to enjoy fresh food from gardening.

  1. It really did make you think, walking out there in what was left of the gardens, how beautiful it must have been. Also interesting to learn that the water has pretty much been diverted to L.A., otherwise, it wouldn't be quite so desert-y out there now!
