Erosion conditions in heavily grazed foothills, old Olcease Ranch, Kern County, California. Dark area on central ridge is remnant of top soil, which judging by the amount of erosion pavement of pebbles left stranded by erosion, was once at least 12 inches deeper than it is today. Gullies have cut deeply through sub-soil and the sterile hardpan. Kraebel-298. July 25, 1930.
