There's a reason Red Rock Canyon is named Red Rock Canyon: monumental red and
tan rocks. Outcroppings, long slabs, canyon walls, overhanging faces of huge red sandstone rock. Rock formed millions of years ago when an ancient ocean seabed was forced thousands of feet upwards. The Santa Monica Mountains rose up from that sea.
Sculptured rock formations, red and tan. Soaring sandstone cliffs, caves carved out by water eons ago, geologic rock formations with marine life fossils embedded into the rock. Geology on display.
