"The most impressive natural feature in the Coachella Valley is the northeast face of San Jacinto Peak. In slightly less than seven horizontal miles the peak rises from 800 to 10,834 feet above sea level, creating the steepest escarpment in the continental U.S. No other mountain in the lower 48 states rises so high so fast, not even the Sierra Nevada or Grand Tetons. The San Jacinto Mountains are part of what geologists term the Peninsular Ranges Province, one of the largest geological units in North America. The rock mass is classified as Mesozoic granite. It is a light-colored rock that can be easily observed anywhere in the San Jacintos at intermediate to high elevations. This granite resulted from the cooling of magma moving towards the surface about 100 million years ago during the Mesozoic Era, the age of dinosaurs."
