Dead Mountains road trip, March 6,7 2005
These shots show the mountain range's northern edge, viewed from the powerline road,
looking south. During the day (left) and at sunset (right). The smaller ridges and
canyons to the right were the ones explored on this trip into the mountians.
The terrain is typically rocks/sand/gravel with fresh green flora (left
photo). The right two shots show the "foothills" which are scattered
around the alluvial plain to the north of the main mountain range. These
hills are anywhere from 20 to 100 feet high and are magnets for
hill-topping species including Swallowtails, Vanessids, Orange Tips,
Marbles (right two pictures).
