  Moonstone Beach near Cambria.
Photograph taken December 26, 2003.

This photo was taken looking north. Hearst Castle is on the ridge at right. Notice the gentle coastal plain along the coast here.

A little farther north, at Ragged Point, the coastal plain disappears and is replaced by steep cliffs plunging into the sea. The fault associated with the 22 December 2003 San Simeon 6.5 M earthquake, the Oceanic - Huasna fault passes from land to sea just south of Ragged Point.
