The beauty and picturesqueness of the badlands in Red Rock Canyon, eastern Kern County, are well known to all who have traveled by road between Mojave and Owens Valley. The casual wayfarer, who tarries a moment to view the landscape in the vicinity of the old postoffice station of Ricardo, cannot fail to be impressed by the color and sculptured form displayed here by cliff face and rock slope. These scenic features, often shown in photograph, are largely the result of weathering and erosion-destructive geologic processes that are breaking down and. carrying away the rocks exposed here.
