On our way to a wedding in Tahoe last summer we stopped for a bit of fishing at Mammoth Lakes. I got up early and made a sunrise visit to the Minarets overlook, and got this view. This is a panoramic photograph, composed of 10 separate images stitched (on the computer) into a single, enormous file.
Panorama of the Minarets at sunrise, near Mammoth Mountain. The Minarets are a series of seventeen jagged peaks in the Ritter Range, west of Mammoth Mountain in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. These basalt peaks were carved by glaciers on both sides of the range. The highest of the Minarets stands 12,281 feet above sea level.
