A Peek at Mustang Peak

Though not officially named, the mountain in this photo is called Mustang Peak but is also known as Howard Peak. One of a series of smaller peaks dotting the ridgeline above 10, 800′, the peak in the photo is just over 11,000′. Located in the Pioneer Mountains of central Idaho, it is the backdrop of the valley my wife and I go camping in every summer.  It is amazing to sit by the creek and watch the colors and shadows change on the face as the sun moves across the sky. The photo was taken in August, and some years there is still snow in the hanging valley off to the right of the mountain. No photo will ever do it justice, but the framing of the trees off to each side really shows how prominent it is in the surrounding landscape.
