The entire La Sal Mountain Range.
These mountains were made by lava trying to break through the surface to form a volcano.
They never broke through, but instead, hardened. After millions of years of uplift,
the dirt above erroded, exposing two or three huge domes.
Time has basically melted the domes into many peaks.
First Group (Left): Grandview, Horse, Waas, Manns, Tomasaki, and Haystack.
Second Group (Middle): Mellenthin, Peale and Tukunikivatz.
Third Group (Right): South Mountain.

Mellenthin, Laurel (sub-peak), Peale and Tukunikivatz.
The three highest peaks in the La Sals.
All three are above 12,000 ft.

Grandview, Horse, Waas, Manns, and Tomasaki in the far background.
