Vasquez Rocks 2 (Star Trek + Blazing Saddles)

Continuing from the last entry, all one has do is drive up the road to the other side. Then look back and you have the other side of the famous rock formation. To the Trekkers it is known as the arena Kirk fought the Gorn at:

To others, it is where Hedley Lamarr tells his evil minions to "do that voo-doo that you do so well!"
You can see the railroad they were building was not too far away either.
The following picture is much further into the park (south), but you can still see the main rocks in the distance.
Just last week I was watching Kevin Sorbo in Avenging Angel on the Hallmark Channel. There was a scene within the first 20 minutes of the movie where he had to deal out Justice to a baddie at the main rock formation. In the next entry I will wrap this up with some of the lesser explored areas along the hiking trail they have.
