What a pristine beauty bathed in warm sunlight! A great standout against the refreshing blue sky.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I love this mountain! Thanks so much, Steven!
a beautiful scene...

Not sure when I will see such scenes next time.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I love it - and I get to see it every day!

This is lovely Elizabeth, a grand winter view
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Chris - I love this mountain!
I love that they're all named, Elizabeth...and rightfully so.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Ginnie! Well - some names need to be changed, as it turns out some of them were not nice guys. It's a sacred mountain to the Navajo and Hopi.. and they were not treated well (to put it nicely), by these men.

That looks cold, Elizabeth. I just love the clouds/mist around the tops there. What a wonderful scene.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yeah... smile Thank you, Astrid! It's a beautiful mountain!

The cold clouds also look like driven snow, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So they do!

Aaaah.. proper-sized mountains Love the snow on the trees on the mountainside. I wonder how long it would take you to walk from your viewpoint to the base of the mountains?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yeah...Isn't it beautiful! Well... I'm not sure, but it's about 9-10 miles to the base as the crow flies... No trail from here to there directly, and though thick forest.
Très belle prise de vue !
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you!
Que c'est beau !!
An impressive sight E. Sugar coated mountains
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Bill! I love this landscape!

I do like the way clouds tend to ha g around mountain tops.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Chad - I love that, too!
All the best elements of Winter in this lovely shot
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Martin!
You couldn't have asked for better conditions for this shot. Presumably if one has the energy to get to the top of either of the end peaks then it's possible to walk along the top of them all.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was a perfect day!
Well... yes, sort of, and certainly not in one day. You'll have an elevation gain of over 4,000 feet (starting around 8,000' and ending at over 12,000'wink The trails do not go specifically to each peak because there is sensitive and protected tundra landscape, above the tree line - with rare plants that occur only here.
Perfect timing, love it!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Rob!
It is so wonderful that you captures the cloud/mist/fog copying the mountain. I see this in valleys sometimes.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Care! Lovely isn't it!
oh i was not aware of such mountains in California, Elizabeth. superb shot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Actually - the Sierra Nevada's in California (which will include Yosemite, I'm sure you've heard of...) have mountains that are a couple thousand feet higher than this. However- the San Francisco Peaks are in Arizona- we live at the base of this volcano in Flagstaff! They were named by the Franciscan Friars in honor of St. Frances di Assisi.
beauty of the west
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Indeed it is!
Majestic! Very America!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - I think so!
