Rocks of Ages

As other-worldly as it looks, Vasquez Rocks County Park is a hideaway very near Los Angeles. Tucked away in Escondido Canyon near Soledad Canyon, about 10 miles north of Newhall it is hidden enough that it was once used by the famed Mexican bandit Tiburcio Vasquez, after whom it is named. Camping and picnicking are reasons to go there, but the main attraction is the park's dramitic rock outcroppings, which are good for climbng, scrambling, photographing or just plain sightseeing.
