What's that peak on the horizon?
It looks a lot like Tokewanna.
Thanks Larry! Yes, the peak on the horizon, not quite a third of the way over from the right, with a small bright cloud to its right, is Tokewanna.
Thanks Mrs. Zee!
(That's what I figured, but was just a wild
Congratulations on your well-deserved Photo of the Day!
Thank you Eric!
A sens of wildness and peace! Thank you and congratulations for your "Photo of the Day"!
So beautiful and I love the cloud moving over the center! Congratulations on Photo of the Day!

12338 is blocked by Mt Powell and can't be seen
12700, the main Red Castle summit, looks striped
12566, pointier than 12700
the snow covered 12825

Not too many folks in Arizona own Gortex, for
