Looking southwest at North Mountain
(elevation 2104 feet, 641 meters) from Lookout Mountain.
The Sierra Estrella range forms the skyline in the distance
behind. Both sets of mountains are made of rocks, remnants of massive
ranges that existed in this part of the world almost 2 billion years ago. Those old
mountains are entirely gone -- their make-up is now the "building blocks" of
these younger peaks.
The Pointe Hilton at Tapatio Cliffs is located near the head of the
small valley near the center of the photo, near where 7th Street cuts through the mountain
to the south. You can look back from North Mountain's summit to where this picture
was taken, for the reverse view. Next View >>
