These unconsolidated sediments crop out near the eastern corner of the Fort Ord Public Lands within sight of the Creekside Terrace trailhead. The clasts display a range of sorting, rounding, and layering. They probably represent detritus eroded from the paleo-Coast Ranges that was deposited in fluvial and fan environments during their transport to the Pacific. A closeup macro-panorama of a small portion of this outcrop that shows cross bedding of sand-sized grains is here: zoom.it/S9y4 Will open in a new tab or window
This outcrop lies near the edge of the hills comprise the former Ft Ord Military Base. Turning 180 degrees from this spot would reveal a view of the Salinas Valley. A related gigapan, taken from a spot a few yards away shows similar sediments, the Salinas River, and the Salinas Valley.
