With Griffith Peak on the...
With Griffith Peak on the left, other southern Nevada peaks and ranges can be seen from this vantage point on the Charleston Peak trail. Notice all the trees in this picture, truly amazing when you realize they are mainly all Bristlecone trees. This is one of the biggest stands of Bristlecones I have ever seen.

BTW, can anyone identify the peaks seen here?

but I can't recall this particular vantage point on the South Loop Trail. I assume that it's looking ESE? Even more shameful to admit is that I can't say I can name those peaks either, even though I know (and have hiked or climbed) about all of them. I suppose the angle is throwing me off. The prominent one in the center of the photo is possibly La Madre Peak, Frenchman Mtn. could be the one on the horizon to the left. If you give me more info. on where this photo was taken from, I can probably give you more of any idea of which peaks are which.

This spot is where the trail starts up and leaves the Bristlecones about a mile from the summit of Charleston.

Pahrump would be to the right so ESE would probably be right on. Some of those may need SP pages ; )

Unfortunately, I can't tell for sure which mountains they are. The prominent one, as I said, may be La Madre Peak, or it could even be Mt. Potosi, which is quite a bit south from Griffith. Hmmm. Anyway, I'd be happy to do SP pages on any S. NV peaks that other folks are willing to contribute photos to.

Dean, In this picture I identified the peaks in view on your photo.



I used a program I wrote that uses USGS data to create a shaded-relief rendering of the view from the approximate location that you took the photo. Once the bitmap image is created, my program will identify points on the picture, given the bitmap X,Y pixel coordinates.

That is neat, now I know which one Potosi is (one of my future Las Vegas Peak objectives). I liked your picture so much with the identifiers I just had to give it 4 stars. ; ) Thanks Day HIker.
