An unknown peak appears...

An unknown peak appears magically for an instant, before quickly disappearing.

That's an unknown peak?

And I thought we had mountains in the US!

It's unknown to me! If I looked at a good map I could probably hazard a guess. It's west of Jannu, and probably has a name. It stopped me in my tracks when it came out of the clouds.

In Nepal, most mountains in the US (Alaska aside), wouldn't have names on the map (but might have local ones), or if they did, would be lableled Ri (hill). Check out the un-named peak on the right of the photo:
