Hollywood glaciers

Hollywood was in sight of glaciers as recently as five-thousand years ago:

Using a new technique to measure how long glacier-strewn boulders have been ice-free, geologist Lewis Owen of the University of California at Riverside and colleagues have discovered there were several glacial periods on San Gorgonio Mountain immediately northeast of Los Angeles.

Most peculiar.
