Following LACMA's big rock through Long Beach, tweet by tweet
Los Angeles Times reporter Deborah Vankin has been following the rock's trip and live tweeted from the scene starting Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning.
The $10-million caravan was celebrated first with a block party in the neighborhood of Bixby Knolls and ended its travels in the middle of a street in Carson.
The 105-mile journey is scheduled to end up at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art early Saturday. The giant boulder eventually will be the focal point of artist Michael Heizer's landmark sculpture "Levitated Mass" on the museum grounds.
Here, for those who were not following Vankin in the middle of the night, is a recap of her tweets and photos.
