Mormon Rocks (Day 135/365)

These rock formations lie approximately 30 minutes from my home in Crestline. I’m wanting to spend some time taking pictures there, but so far haven’t had the chance. I snapped this one from our moving car this morning on our way to Lancaster.

“In California along Interstate 15 about 19 miles north of San Bernardino, and at Junction 138 going west, there are some interesting rock formations. Locally known as the Mormon Rocks, but officially called Rock Candy Mountains, the strange rock formations are most unusual with holes everywhere poked out by the wind and weather through centuries.
