Devil's Punchbowl Rock Formations

Conglomerate boulders in front of a dramatic landscape

One of Southern California's "secret" natural wonders is the Devil's Punchbowl Natural Area. It features incredible tilted sedimentary rock formations that were carved by water runoff from nearby mountains. The location is excellent for hiking, rock climbing, and photography! I shot this image in the early nineties on Fujichrome Velvia film.
