While perusing Facebook lately (don't give me that look. You do it, too), I've been noticing a sudden trend of people having pictures in front of this enormous shadow wall. Now, I let it go for a little while, figuring maybe it had been a GYRAD or something and that's why everyone had been there, but as time went on, MORE of these pictures showed up. So finally I inquired about the location of this thing so that I, too, could be hip and silhouetted. Turns out there's a whole lot more to this place than a wall that makes you look ginormous.
The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum California Scenario in Costa Mesa is located in a rather inconspicuous location, which is what I'm going to blame for the fact that I've lived here for four years and have never noticed it. The landscape is representative of the many different landscapes of the state of California. Wet, dry, forested - it's all in here somewhere. Seriously, this place is LEGIT. Czech it out.
