It takes something like a space shuttle trundling through downtown Los Angeles to tempt me to make the trip up to the big city. When I heard that Endeavour's progress through the city streets was being slowed down by tight squeezes, I hopped a train, navigated my way through the LA subway system, and arrived in the Vermont parking lot next to the California Science Center about 20 minutes before it arrived.
Endeavour did not want to go easily into that good night. The baby of the shuttle fleet wanted to bask under a cloudless California sky for a few more hours. I spent about five hours in the hot sun keeping it company, but it was worth it! Without further ado, here's my pictures, photos, and one clumsy iPad drawing of Endeavour's last ride.
