Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park is a 905-acre park located in the Sierra Pelona Mountains, in northern Los Angeles County, California. It is in the Agua Dulce vicinity between the Antelope Valley and the Santa Clarita Valley north of Los Angeles and seen easily by motorists driving the Antelope... Valley Freeway . These rock formations were formed by action of the San Andreas Fault. In 1873 and 1874 Tiburcio Vásquez, one of California's most notorious bandits, used these rocks to elude capture by law enforcement. His name has since been associated with this geologic feature. The land and rock formations were acquired by the Los Angeles County government in the 1970s. Vasquez Rocks was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 due to its significance as a prehistoric site for the Shoshone and Tataviam peoples. In 1935, Universal Pictures assigned Stanley Bergerman as executive producer on the film Werewolf of London. Bergerman suggested the Vasquez Rocks as the location for what was supposed to be Tibet.more
