The Cabrillo Formation #4

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 14 September 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The Cabrillo Formation is composed mainly of sandstones and conglomerates, and is approximately 70 million years old. Fossils from this formation are not well known and consist of remains of marine invertebrates and vertebrates. The Cabrillo Formation crops out along the eastern and southwestern sides of the Point Loma peninsula in both sea cliff exposures and road cuts. It is also exposed on the western, northern, and eastern flanks of Mount Soledad.
