Sunset At Gaviota Beach


A short 30 miles west of Santa Barbara lies Gaviota State Park Beach (which takes its name from the Spanish word for seagull). Of particular interest are these rock formations which are part of the Monterey Shale Formation. Looking like pages from a book these rocks are oil rich and embedded with a wide range of fossils including remains of halibut type fish.
