The Proto-Carmel River deposited these river gravels thousands of years ago. The gravels were deposited on top of Monterey formation, a Miocene diatomaceous mudstone. Since the Monterey formation is gently dipping to the left (wesst) in this image, the contact is an angular unconformity.

Since depositing the gravels, the Carmel River has eroded down through its own detritus and the underlying Monterey formation bedrock, leaving these river gravels resting on the side of the Carmel Valley.

Turn around 180 degrees from this spot to enjoy a view of the present-day Carmel Valley:
