Panoramic view from southwest...
Panoramic view from southwest (left) to northwest (right), taken from Dunderberg Peak's summit. Mount Conness (12,599') is the prominent light granite peak on the left. Excelsior Mountain (12,440'+) is the tall red-colored peak to Conness's right. The various multi-hued peaks and beautiful lakes of the Hoover Wilderness occupy the image's entire foreground. Virginia Peak, in northeast Yosemite NP, is the prominent "plug" of reddish-black rock pasted on top of a diorite/granite background. This peak is an excellent example of a "roof pendant", a remnant raft of old meta-sedimentary rocks floating on top of an intruded granite batholith. Large image mandatory
