Red Rock Canyon State Park

 

Red Rock Canyon State Park is in the El Paso Mountains just north of Mojave, CA.  The red and cream sedimentary layers create contrasts in the cliffs which have been the background for numerous movies, including Jurassic Park, Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Westworld, and Flash Gordon.
