Montello, NV (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Pilot Peak was named in 1845 for its use as an easily recognized landmark. John C. Fremont saw the peak from the east during his third expedition, mapping the Great Basin. Wondering whether his entire party could cross the desert he sent Kit Carson ahead to scout for water sources. Finding a perennial spring just east of the peak, Carson lit a large bonfire, the smoke from which signalled Fremont that the crossing was possible. (Wikipedia)

Gorgeous light and ambience, Summer. Beautiful capture! 10!

Congrats on your AC!!

As Mara mentioned, it looks very much like Capulin, a perfectly preserved cinder cone Volcano, in north east New Mexico.

This is such an interesting volcanic formation rising out of the desert flats.

I often wondered as I went by Wendover NV and Pilot Peak if there was a jeep trail to the top. If my name was Heidrun or RudI - I might hike to the top. There has to be a great view of the Salt Flats from up there.

Update-Congratulations Summer
