Geology of the Haskell Canyon region, southern California


Franklin, Elmer Sherwood (1933) Geology of the Haskell Canyon region, southern California. Bachelor's thesis, California Institute of Technology.


The Haskell Canyon region, located in the northeast portion of Los Angeles County, California, occupies a rectangular block of approximately 10 square miles in area, the center of which is some 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles (Plate 1). The region may be described as that portion of the Sierra Pelona Mountains which occupies the area bounded by latitudes 118°30' and 118°27' and meridians 34°32' and 34°28'. The area mapped extends from Bouquet Canyon northward the length of Haskell Canyon, a distance of about 4½ miles. It may be readily reached from Saugus, a small town (1¾ miles to the southwest) on the main line of the Southern Pacific Railroad to San Francisco and on U.S. Highway Number 99. All parts of the area are readily accessible for numerous roads cut.
