During the Triassic-Jurassic Period, the rock formation that would become known as the Bedford Canyon Formation on the eastern slope of the Santa Ana Mountains, the oldest known rock formations in the future OC, begins to form deep beneath an ancient ocean.These ancient hills, ripe with volcanic activity, rise to no more than an elevation of 1,000 feet.
It is covered with scrub forest and inhabited by ancient horses, rhinoceros and camels.
5 to 1.8 Million Years Ago Los Angeles-Orange County area hills are forced upwards in height to become mountain ranges. 1.8 Million to 10,000 Years Ago Large mountain ranges now are present and the Los Angeles-Orange County Basin, formed from accumulating sediment deposits, slowly rises from the sea.
The shoreline recedes to about where it exists today.
The climate is cooler and moister than present, similar to that of present-day Monterey Peninsula, with glacier activity along the peaks of the San Gabriel and Santa Ana Mountains.
Growing up in Orange County, my family often packed up the family van on weekends and headed down to Huntington Beach to spend an inexpensive day of family fun at the beautiful beach.
My parents used to comment on the Golden Bear Nightclub (opened in 1929) on 306 Ocean Avenue whenever we'd pass it, because it was so famous, and the host to so many of the performers they listened to as teens in nearby Norwalk and Santa Fe Springs.
I always dreamed of getting to go there myself once I became an adult... I was appalled when this county landmark closed in 1986 to make way for the downtown redevelopment of Huntington Beach.
The Golden Bear was as synonymous to Huntington's rich beach culture as is surfing itself.
The beaches of Huntington are still beautiful, but I rarely go now(choosing more quaint and laid back San Clemente or Laguna instead) because I don't like what I see there anymore.
Land begins to emerge, with the local shoreline running along the San Gabriel, Santa Monica and Santa Ana Mountains and the Covina Hills.
24 to 5 Million Years Ago At the beginning of this era, what will become the Los Angeles-Orange County Basin lies beneath a deep, subtropical sea and, before the San Andreas Fault begins its push, is located about 100-150 miles southeast of where it is today.
65 Million Years Ago Toward the beginning of the Cenozoic Era, the Los Angeles-Orange County Basin and mountains lie beneath swampy sea-marshes and lagoons, receiving sediment from large rivers flowing out of the low-lying ancestral Nevadan mountains. The San Gabriel and Santa Ana Mountains begin to form.
