At the junction of the Big Pine and San Andreas faults, Frazier Mountain lies to the south, while, to the north, beyond the portion of the Mojave Desert Province that fronts the mountains, the Sierra Nevada turns southwest and west in the Tehachapi mountains. To the west, the southern Coastal Ranges Province meets the Sierra Nevada Province at the point where the Temblor Range, having turned southeast and east into the San Emigdio Mountains and the Pleito Hills, meets the Tehachapi Mountains. To the east of the junction of the Big Pine and San Andreas faults, the northern boundary of the Transverse Ranges Province is somewhat less distinct.
