Abstract

The region under consideration is known as the Sand Canyon-Soledad Canyon Area. It is situated about 7.8 miles to the east of the town of Saugus, and its easternmost boundary is near the station of Lang. It lies on the north-east slope of the western end of the San Gabriel Mountains.

It is bounded on the north by Soledad Canyon, on the west by Sand Canyon and its tributary Gorman Canyon, and on the south-east by a line which is in a direction of S 26° W and passes approximately .5 miles east of Lang. The landmarks used are taken from the U.S.G.S. Humphreys, Lang, Sylmar, and Little Tujunga Quadrangle Maps.

The area is roughly triangular in shape, and covers an area of approximately 5 square miles.
