Stoney Point

The rock outcropping beside Topanga Canyon Boulevard in Chatsworth has caught people’s eyes since before Portola led his expedition into the Valley in 1769 and came upon a society of native Tongva and Chumash. Native artifacts have been found at several spots around the base of Stoney Point, but I just like this photo. It was taken last spring by Jerry England of Chatsworth—yes, scenes like this still exist within the second most-populous city in the country. The image appears in its full glory on the website of the Chatsworth Equine Cultural Heritage Organization. There’s another view of the rock here and a shot by Steve Ford here.
