Palm Spring Formation tipped by the San Andreas Fault. The Mecca Hills are a rising block of sedimentary formations sandwiched between earthquake faults associated with the southern San Andreas Fault System that runs basically along the eastern side of the Coachella Valley and the Salton Sea.

Active Faults; Conglomerate; Deformation; Fault Zones; Faults; North American Plate; Offsets; Pacific Plate; Plate Boundaries; Plate Tectonics; San Andreas Fault; Strike-Slip Faults; TectonicsThese tilted conglomerates are found in a spur of the Painted Canyon in California's Mecca Hills. The Mecca Hills were formed by the convergence of the North American Plate and the Pacific Plate along the San Andreas Fault. The geologic formations of Mecca Hills are among the most unusual of their kind in the world. Layers of eroded rock, some over 600 million years old, have been pushed up and overturned by the activity of the San Andreas Fault system. Painted Canyon, in the heart of the hills, exhibits many mineral deposits in hues of rose, pink, red, purple and green.
