A Snow Capped View from Floyd Lamb Park

There is at least one other photo of the mountains taken from Floyd Lamb Park on the blog, but I don’t think that they are color versions. In any case, I just turned around and saw the mountains near Mount Charleston in the photos. From my home’s location, this view isn’t possible because of the foothills you may have seen before here. Both Mount Charleston and Fletcher Peak are just under 12,000 feet, but I think of them as the same altitude ASL. That’s around 2.5 miles high, nothing like the Appalachian range back east, those are foothills to me.

  1. Looking over at Mt. Charleston is always special. Looks like they still have quite a bit of snow for the spring. If we were coming this year, we would be there in 2 weeks, but you couldn’t pay me enough to get on a plain right now! 🙂

    • Thanks, they are a part of the Spring Mountains, north/south range. Nevada is the most mountainous state right behind Alaska. Las Vegas is surrounded.

    • Thanks, Sue, I agree the second photo is framed a bit better. I was photographing birds, turned around and saw this view. So nice today!

    • I thought about converting them, or one but didn’t obviously. The snow up there will be gone by summer. Those peaks are over 8000 feet.

Your pleasant comment is welcome!
