One of my absolute favorite places to visit is the Los Angeles Arboretum in Arcadia, CA. Its a place that is beyond peaceful and makes you appreciate the amount of biodiversity that can exist in any one spot on Earth. Everything different types of plants and trees to various animals that roam around the 127-acre park. It’s truly a place that I look forward to visiting any chance I get.

On my most recent trip, I was accompanied by my good friend Emely. While we were there we took an hour-long tram ride that took us through every single location we could get to using the paved roads. Since we were a small group, they used an extended golf cart instead of a usual tram. This gave the driver the opportunity to take us off-roading through the trees and inside the bamboo forest by the lake where all the ducks hang out.

Below are a selection of some of my favorite photos I took during the tram ride and afterward as well. I took a bunch of cool photos of Emely that I posted up as a separate gallery that I linked above.

Every time I come to the Arboretum I leave with a huge smile on my face. The place is so calming and peaceful and I can’t wait to visit again in the near future.
