Various pictures of the La Sal Mountains taken from the roads
around the range. If you have any information about the La
Sal Mountains, that isn't provided here, please leave a message
at the bottom of the page.
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.

All three are above 12,000 ft.
